Pair Antique Chinese Elephant Joss Stick Holders / Candlesticks
This pair of antique French porcelain joss stick holders in the form of ceremonial elephants date from the nineteenth century, and come fresh from estate sale. We have found no visible cracks or losses. The inside surfaces of the holders are a little rough, suggesting possible prior restoration. Each carries the same impressed mark which appears to be a capital "S" with "+" sign and "W" or other character. Possibly by Samson. They would make wonderful candle holders. Neither were cleaned prior to photography. Each measures approximately 9.7" high, 9" long and 4" deep.
