    Does the mark on the bottom of this old candle stick candle holder look familiar to anyone? I have used a magnifying glass to try to make out some of the letters, but I cannot make out enough to even begin. All I can make out is the sphinx, and I don't want to scrub the rust too much and damage the mark more. Thanks for any help you can provide!

      Here's two possibilities for the sphinx mark:

      John Batt & Company, London, England.
      Joseph Sankey & Son, Bilston, Wolverhampton, near Birmingham, England.
      They were known for their copper and brass wares. Don't know if they produced silverplated items.

      I have looked extensively at both companies mentioned by Sewing53, and if you look at the writing on the top, it appears to say "& sons." However, I could not locate a mark with the half circle writing on top and bottom. I appreciate the info!
