    The images of the item is that what appears to be a Chinese hand painted ceramic candle holder.
    Measuring, about 9 inches tall, it is very beautiful decorated with a floral motif.
    It is clearly marked with Chinese characters, that closely resembles ming dynasty marks, circa 1426 - 1435 (Xuande).
    That being said, there are a few noticeable flaws.
    The separation lines are not as precise as it should be for ceramics of this era. Ceramics from this era was very crisp and percise.
    Therefore, it is my opinion that this candle stick is more than like a reproduction from a later date.
    Possibly, from the late 18th or early 19th century.

    I welcome any and all information pertaining to this item.

      this is the Macao variiation of Fang Da Qing Qianlong meaning mimicking Great Qing dynasty Qianlong period, made very recent
