Candlesticks were very popular in the Ming and Qing dynasties. In the Ming Dynasty, the Eight-way candlestick was popular in Yongle, with candle-shaped posts placed on the candlestick. This candlestick is a candlestick style produced in the early Ming Dynasty according to the needs of foreign markets, and its shape is imitated from Islamic metal utensils. Both the mouth and the base of the candlestick are designed in the same shape as an octagonal prism. The tube of the candlestick is deep cup-shaped, with a waist in the middle and an octagonal prism at the bottom. The candle holder under the column also has a waist. The Ming Dynasty candlesticks were also decorated with animal patterns, but such decorations are relatively rare. The vertical brazed candlestick is the most distinctive shape of the candlestick in the Ming and Qing Dynasties. The pedestal resembles an ancient clock sitting on the ground. The wall of the pedestal is hollowed out. The seat is connected with a column. The upper part and the lower part of the column each have a small one, one large and two candlesticks, both of which are hexagonal. A long candlestick stands in the small plate. This style of lamps is very popular, and candlesticks of various textures are available.
Ming and Qing metal lamps were also more developed, such as cloisonné enamel, copper, silver, and tin. Although the popular copper and iron lamps are not as gorgeous as palace lamps, their shapes and decorations are also very distinctive, showing the ingenuity of folk artists. Among them, the cloisonné enamel lamps are the most distinctive ones, and they are mostly used in the court. For example, the Qianlong cloisonné enamel Haiyanhe Qing lamps are divided into three parts, the lamp panel, the lamp post, and the lamp braze. The lamp plate is like a plate with 3 legs under the plate. The lamp post is made into a bird with wings spread out. The bird’s mouth contains a bead, and there is a wax braze in the middle of the plate, which looks like a torch. The pan and the bird's body are twisted with flat metal wires, bent and rotated into a luanbao pattern, which is very magnificent.iron wall hanging candle holder factory
