This is a three arm candleabra made by Eg Webster and Son of Brooklyn, New York between the years of 1886 to 1928. The word hard white metal quadruple plated means that the base metal is a combination of nickel and zinc that was dipped in a liquid wash of silver four times, this is where the term silver-plated comes from. The whole candelabra had this same finish when it was new, but silver plating wears off over the years from handling and polishing. It looks like the plating is gone on a lot of this piece, but if you wanted to polish it, you should use Wright's Silver Cream (about 3.00 in grocery stores).
