Two Chinese Canton porcelain candlesticks, 8” high. These hard-to-find candlesticks are beautifully hand-painted in blue and white and are in excellent condition, with no cracks or chips. (One candlestick has a few tiny glaze flakes around the bottom rim.) Close inspection reveals that while the designs on these candlesticks closely resemble each other, they are not a true pair, although they were apparently used that way. Early 19th century.
