Look at what I found on the Online Galleries website!
The column of each candlestick is embellished with embossed and chased decoration replicating the details of the dragon's features, including the scales and fire breath.
Each dragon's body is further ornamented with two applied protruding arms and legs, in addition to a shaped beard.
The plain cylindrical capitals are fitted with detachable push fit sconces.
These dragon candlesticks have circular bases embellished with chased decoration depicting iconic oriental cloud motifs on a matte background.
The bases are not weighted and allow access to the screw fitments to the underside; these fittings allow the dragon columns to stand securely in situ.
The hallmarks to the base of each impressive candlestick includes:
Maker's mark: WH (Wang Hing & Company)
Silver quality/purity mark: 90 (90 standard, 900/1000)
Character maker: Untraced
