This is a matching pair of Antique/Vintage Carved Jade Candle Holders. These remind me of the Art Deco era, when people enjoyed the finer things in life! These are very classy, and make an impression on all who see them! These are carved from two different types and colors of Jade.
It looks to me like the Flower Petals are carved from a pale green Serpentine type of Jade and that the leaves are carved from a deeper dark green Jade. All of these are attached by wires to a faux branch, much like the Jade Tree's and Fruit's of the same era. Each piece also has a center piece carved from Serpentine to actually hold candles, most likely taper candles. There is also a beautiful flower bud on each piece, also carved from Serpentine. There are tiny little red beads wrapped around the center of the candle for extra color and contrast.I can not determine if these tiny red beads are carved from coral or if they are faux, but that is what they remind me of! These are in excellent condition for their age! I was unable to find any chips, cracks, breaks, or repairs. The only "issues" I noticed where that someone has burned candles in these leaving a darker burn residue to the centerpiece and one still has remnants of a candle inside. There is also some glue residue around the center that is somewhat noticeable on both. Other than that, a couple of the flower petals have some inner structure fracture lines apparent, but these do not compromise the structure at all! These could also benefit from a good cleaning. I always leave cleaning to the new owner with antique objects! These pieces measure about 6 inches long and wide and stand about 1 1/2 inches tall! I'm not sure which flower these are made to resemble, but they are reminiscent of the Cherry Blossoms that are local to the region of origin!
This represents different things depending on the culture but does often symbolize hope, humility, and feminine beauty and is associated with the Goddess or feminine energy! I always describe Jade as Good Luck, Good Health, & Good Wealth! Jade is one of my favorite stones for the all around positive energy it promotes and is treasured around the world for it's powerful properties and beauty! These would be an amazing addition to anyone's collection or perfect to add a touch of class your surroundings, while raising the vibration of a space to one of pure, positive, prosperous energy and flow!
