pair of chinese export porcelain famille rose candlesticks
Qianlong period circa 1740
Height: 8 inches; 20cm
A very fine pair of Chinese export porcelain candlesticks decorated in famille rose enamels, the octagonal base with blue floral border, the chimney with flowers.
Porcelain candlesticks copying silver forms like these are quite rare as they are vulnerable to damage. These are very bright and elegant examples.
