More goodwill items!! I picked these up for my sister and am looking for a little info on them before I pass them along. The bird/duck thing is missing its lid, it is about 3" tall and almost 5" long. Any info on either would be great!!

    Hi, this is a Chinese mark for Da Qing Qianlong Nian Zhi, that is, Qing Dynasty, Qianlong Period (1736-1795), however, the candle holder is probably late 20th century. ...Jim

    The Chinese characters for the duck are Zhong Guo Zhi Zao, (China made) and read from left to right, which dates this piece after 1960.

    The best overall site I know of is Gotheborg, it's been around for years, covers both Japan and China. Just click on:

    You can get to the Chinese from this too. Good Luck, ...Jim
