This is rare opportunity indeed to purchase a matched pair of Royal Bayreuth candle holders in the form of foxes dressed in traditional English hunting attire.
Royal Bayreuth is a famous manufacturer of porcelain since 1794 and originally based at Tettau in the midst of the Thuringia Forest in Bavaria, Germany.
They were renowned not only for the superior quality of their porcelain but also for the fabulous range of models and designs. Each piece is unique as they are hand painted and the vibrant colours used especially on the fruit, vegetables and animals is quite incredible.
This pair of candle holders is probably the rarest and most sought after of all Royal Bayreuth pieces, they are a matched pair with the fox and vixon facing in opposite directions and of course the colouring or markings are different and one is fractionally taller than the other which is the case if you study foxes in the wild.
The expressions on their faces and the way the eyes are turning is quite enchanting and the colour of the hunting jacket bold and vibrant.
As you would expect both are fully marked on the base with 'Registration applied for RD No 726518'
They stand at just over 6" tall.
The condition is quite incredible with absolutely no chips, crazing or restoration.
The pair of candle holders are rare and this is a unique opportunity to acquire an item which even the Royal Bayreuth Museum doesn't possess, a must for every collector.
We only use natural daylight for our photographs, they have not been digitally remastered and no coloured lenses have been used to enhance them.
One fox was sold at auction in the United States in 2002 for $18,000.
We specialise in high end vintage watches which we professionally restore such as Omega, Longines, Rolex, Jaeger LeCoultre etc and also ladies platinum and diamond cocktail watches.


This item is antique. The date of manufacture has been declared as 1930.
