Pair of beautiful bronze metal candlesticks depicting lucky immortal Liu Haichan (劉海蟾) with attendants.
Liu Haichan (劉海蟾) was a 10th century Daoist Xian "transcendent; immortal". Liu Haichan is associated with other Daoist transcendents, especially Zhongli Quan and Lü Dongbin, two of the Eight Immortals. Traditional Chinese and Japanese art frequently represented Liu with a string of square-holed cash coins and a mythical three-legged chánchú (蟾蜍) "toad; toad in the moon". In the present day, it is called the jīnchán (金蟾) "Money Toad", and Liu Haichan is considered an embodiment of Caishen "God of Wealth".
