The history of the Candle jar.

During the Three Kingdoms period, there was a celadon Candle jar in the form of a recumbent sheep, and in the Western Jin dynasty a Candle jar in the form of a recumbent lion was popular; during the Southern dynasty, the Candle jar was richer in style, with lion-shaped, single, double, four-pipe and lotus-shaped versions, of which the tubular Candle jar was popular in the Fujian region, with a long stringed handle and an open bowl at the top of the handle, with a candle holder in the bowl. The bases of Candle jars from the Sui and Tang dynasties are often carved with exquisite floral motifs. Candle jars from the Ming dynasty are rich in form and have a high artistic value, including those made at the Jingdezhen kilns during the Yongle and Xuande periods, where the mouth and pedestal are octagonal and the neck is cylindrical. In the collection of the Palace Museum, Beijing, the Ming Zhengde official kiln-marked blue and white Arabic Candle jar is a tubular cylinder standing on a high pedestal plate, and the shape of the Candle jar from the Qing dynasty onwards is largely inherited from this style. Modern Candle jars are generally cylindrical.
