Candlesticks are uncommon in Chinese export porcelain, and this example from the Reves Collection appears to be especially rare. It was evidently modeled after mid-18th-century European metal examples and is closely related to silver and gilt bronze candlesticks made in France and Germany between 1750 and 1775.
