A set of four cloisonné enameled metal gu-form candle prickets and vases
19th century
Perhaps originally part of a larger garniture set, each of similar shape comprised of a bell-form base and tiered bell-form mouth separated by a single globular nodule, the green, white, yellow, red, blue, and light pink decorative motifs covering the exterior surfaces in a lotus and vine ground surrounding the shou-medallions and auspicious bats on the central nodule, the unmarked gilt bases sealed to the leiwen foot rims by screws.
