This Chinese vintage porcelain pair of blue and white candlesticks decorated with a five call Chinese dragon also called Unryu or dragon in the clouds. They were a purchase from japan. They were not sure of the exact age, IMO about 20-30 years old. during the Republic of China. Because China is so old and dabbled in ceramics much earlier than Japan, many of Japan's methods and style were taken from the Chinese works, so one may see a similarity and sometimes hard to tell apart. These candlesticks are formed into a very nice shape by hand. into a rectange bottoml with a wide foot and a rounded top with a rounded rim. They are painted by hand in underglase blue of a dragon in the clouds and bordered on top with flowers and the wave pattern on the bottom, They are in excellent condition with no cracks or chips and very beautiul dragon decorated candlesticks.

Chinese ceramics show a continuous development since pre-dynastic times and are one of the most significant forms of Chinese art and ceramics globally. The first pottery was made during the Palaeolithic era. Chinese ceramics range from construction materials such as bricks and tiles, to hand-built pottery vessels fired in bonfires or kilns, to the sophisticated Chinese porcelain wares made for the imperial court and for export. Porcelain is so identified with China that it is still called 'china' in everyday English usage.

Most later Chinese ceramics, even of the finest quality, were made on an industrial scale, thus few names of individual potters were recorded. Many of the most important kiln workshops were owned by or reserved for the Emperor, and large quantities of ceramics were exported as diplomatic gifts or for trade from an early date.show a continuous development since pre-dynastic times and are one of the most significant forms of Chinese art and ceramics globally.

the tradition of earlier qingbai porcelains, blue and white wares are glazed using a transparent porcelain glaze. The blue decoration is painted onto the body of the porcelain before glazing, using very finely ground cobalt oxide mixed with water. After the decoration has been applied the pieces are glazed and fired.It is believed that underglaze blue and white porcelain was first made in the Tang dynasty.Starting early in the 14th century, blue and white porcelain rapidly became the main product of Jingdezhen, reaching the height of its technical excellence during the later years of the reign of the Kangxi Emperor[46] and continuing in present times to be an important product of the city.
