An extremely rare and magnificent small pair of mid 18th century Chinese export Canton enamel wall sconces, each having oval centres depicting Chinese figures in bright colours on a white background framed by three-dimensional flowers, leaves and opposing parrots and a shaped cresting, all worked in brightly coloured enamel, and having a single candle nozzle with later glass candle arms.

Note: This extraordinary pair of Canton enamel sconces stands out from the very few known examples by having three-dimensional birds and flowers applied, thus adding to their rarity and importance.
