This is an old pair that have long since had the candles burned out of them. I actually think they look like egg holders and believe that they would work for just that. They stand about 2” high and the top is 1 5/8” in diameter with base at 1 ¼”. They are made of white porcelain and have a blue transfer ware bamboo pattern all around piece. Check out the pictures on this cute pair. There are some Chinese signs on inside of base and there is no chips or cracks on this set.
