This is a French Old Paris hard paste porcelain chamberstick, chamber stick, candle holder with a place to slip the rings onto also. The piece dates to the 19th century, circa 1860 to 1870.

The chamberstick is held with one hand with a lit candle inserted into the receptacle as the female makes her way to her bedroom. She slips off her rings and places them over the pointed ring holder. There is a thumb rest on the loop where the hand holds the chamberstick.

The chamberstick is edged in dark pink enamel. The rest of the piece is glazed white. The underside is bisque, or unglazed.

The point of the thumb rest is rough to the touch. There are some spots of wear to the pink trim. There is some roughness wear to the white glaze on the base of the chamberstick. There are no chips, cracks or glazing. There are some glaze marks due to the wood burning fire kilns.

The underside shows a few squiggle marks, which is something the Paris porcelain makers did during this time period, and is more to do with the artisan making his squiggle during the production process as a form of tracking the progress of each item.
