Pair of Gilt Bronze and Chinese Porcelain Candelabra
A pair of late 19thC Chinese Nanking crackle porcelain vases mounted on French gilt bronze bases and supporting four gilt bronze candle arms; the bronze work having oriental themes; the vases decorated with war scenes and marked on the bases. As the popularity of Asian decorative arts grew in Europe in the 19thC such porcelain was often shipped to France where it was then mounted with gilt bronze. The porcelain and bronze in excellent condition. China/France circa 1890.
Dimensions: 24″H (61cm) x 5″D (13cm), ormolu base
