Antique Porcelain Candlestick Base
Welcome to my auction! For your consideration is an ornate miniature candlestick base with figural boy and floral decorations. Continental porcelain, late 19th to early 20th century. Measures 4.5 inches tall. � The base is 2.5 inches wide. � Although it is missing its upper candle cup, a small tapered candle would still fit in the metal lined opening/hole at the top...this measures just over a centimeter in width. � The underside of this piece has a mark (on top of the glaze) of blue crossed swords. As this is not an underglaze maker's mark, I am not sure if it is original or not.
Good Antique Condition. There are a couple of small chips to the blue flower directly below the large pink rose. There is also some fading to the gold gilt detail. Otherwise, this piece is in very nice condition with no cracks or other damages.
Please consider photos to be a large part of auction description. I would be happy to answer any questions you may have. Additional bidder information below.
