Chinese Cabbage Leaf Candlesticks, Ca. 1880
China Ca. 1880
A tall, very fine pair of porcelain Cabbage Leaf pattern Chinese Export candlesticks. This pair was probably made in the last quarter of the 19th century. The Cabbage Leaf pattern was made until well into the 20th century with the later ones usually marked “CHINA” or “MADE IN CHINA” on the undersides.
There is a price tag still attached from the previous retailer at $3800!!
Excellent except for one small partially repaired chip on the edge of a rim. The bottom of one was slightly warped in the firing process.
