This pair of candle holders was produced on the European continent in the early 19th century. There are no identifying marks with which to ascertain the origin or manufacturer. They are 6 ¼ inches tall and the base is 3 ¾ inches in diameter. The candle holders were assembled in 4 pieces of porcelain held together with a metal rod going through the center. There are panels with hand painted birds. Parts of the candle holders are painted to imitate marble and malachite. This type of faux stone painting is peculiar to a period of time and country. It should be recognizable to some of our viewers. The porcelain is fine and thin. They are in excellent condition.
