Pair of Chinese export wall lights with dragon form candle arms
Unusual pair Qianlong export porcelain single light wall sconces. Each colorfully enameled rectangular backplate depicts a bearded man accompanied by two boys greeting two women in a courtyard. A large dragon mask protrudes and bites the upturned neck of a smaller dragon that holds the candleholder in his mouth. [Repair to one of the smaller candle-holding dragons.]
