Wow! This is an amazing and hard to find pair of vintage Chinese hand painted porcelain ceramic monkey candle holders. This stunning set could also be utilized as vases or double as bookends as they are quite heavy. The seated monkey figure embraces the flowery candle holder as he gazes at you with mesmerizing green eyes. The monkey is an auspicious and lucky character in Chinese legend and mythology, with tobacco a prized commodity. The lovely Tobacco Leaf pattern depicted here was one of the most prized of Chinese Export patterns, developed circa 1780. The design shows the flowering Nicotiana (Tobacco) plant upon which a small phoenix perches bearing a flowering twig in its beak. The magnificent bird of Chinese legend is a symbol for heaven's favor, virtue and grace, luck and happiness. In Chinese mythology, the monkey god was Sun-Wukong, the Monkey King. There is so much fine detail in this finely executed design. The hand painted enamels throughout each piece are skillfully applied and the overall design is one of color, exhuberance and joy! The pair is quite substantial measuring 8 inches tall, 6.5 inches wide, and 5 inches deep. Each weighs 3 pounds for a combined total of 6 pounds! The candle holder/vase alone is 5.5 inches tall with a 1.5 inch diameter mouth. Both monkey statues are in excellent condition with no chips, cracks, or restorations. Each is clearly marked with the red Hua Ping Tang Zhi chop mark on the bottom. Please see all of the detail photos to appreciate this wonderful vintage 1970s monkey pair.

Hua Ping Tang Zhi-Hua Ping Hall porcelain is known for its high quality and non-typical Chinese designs and patterns, all created with thinly applied enamels. These vintage Chinese porcelain ceramic lucky monkey phoenix tobacco leaf pattern candle holders are an amazing find, and will make a fine addition to your home, office, or vintage Orientalia collection!
