Thank you very much for sending over those photos.
From the photos, these look to be William IV era, Sheffield Plated Candelabras produced by Matthew Boulton in Birmingham, England circa 1830. The silver-plated candelabras have a heavy ornamentations in the design of what appears to be either floral or acanthus from what I can see in the photos.
In excellent condition your antique Mathew Boulton Candelabras would have a retail value of 5500-6500CAD.
I don't see any damage in the photos, but if there were any excessive denting, pitting, missing silver-plate or other damage, this would detract from the resale value of the candelabras.
I hope this information was helpful to you today.
Best of luck with your antique Mathew Boulton Candelabras .
Any feedback you can leave for my service would be much appreciated.
Thank You,
