    These are some old very thin (bone china?) candlesticks. They have painted scenes all around the base and each scene is different on each one, so there are 12 different scenes. They measure roughly 5-1/2" tall. It doesn't have the feel of Transferware that I can tell. Has anyone ever seen anything like these? They have absolutely no markings that I could find and Googling descriptions has produced not a hint of what they could be. The images seem almost colonial with the dress, but I am clueless. I only know that my mom in law was very protective over them :) and said they were very old. They are in really good shape with very little condition issues. Honestly I am not even sure which category to list these in.

      Sure they are hand painted with great detail. I feel they are very very old

      Thank you kivatinitz! I guess this is one for Antique Road Show. I can't find anyone who can identify a possible maker or roughly date them. Hmmmm....

      Wow! Thank you! No wonder mom was so protective over them! We're the all made with an "upper part"? There is nothing broken on them, was the upper part a separate piece that just sat on top of them?

      if you look carefully to the pictures in the last post you will see that the shape of yours coincide totally with the half lower part of these ones
    9. JoyB JoyB, 4 years ago
      Yes, it did. I was amazed. Is it possible that they made shorter ones? There is just 1 chip below the top lip, but no broken area

      There is a metal O-ring fixing the two parts.

      Really a great solve Kivatinitz on these splendid pieces!
    12. JoyB JoyB, 4 years ago
      Oh no that makes sense. I thought, even though there wasn't anything broken, there does appear to be "rusty" look to the rim. Thank you, kivatinitz, for helping me solve this!
