This is a pretty little candleholder I probably paid no more than $4.00 for in a thrift shop. I love it.

I looked up Mottahedeh design on the internet and discovered that they specialize in hard porcelain, crystal, brass, silver plate, stoneware, faience and lithographs. They hold licenses to make reproductions and adaptations from the Metropolitan Museum of Art, Colonial Williamsburg, Winterthur, Monticello, Historic Charleston, Historic Natchez, and the National Trust and they have made china for the President, the State Department and for the Diplomatic Corps
Primarily their patterns are based on Chinese Export for the West, Early European and Chinese designs.

I don't have any specifics about this particular design but I find it quite pleasant. Just guessing at the category. Mottahedel isn't listed anywhere.
