Age of this pair of planter?

by Frank
(CA, USA)

This pair of planter is about 16cm tall, 23cm across at the mouth and 11cm at the base. They feel a little bit light (not heavy) in hand. The red color is quite similar to the red color of the tall-foot cup on the top of this page. There are many golden circles with differnt curves around the planter.
Any thought about the age ?
Thank you in advance.

Hi Frank,
I would say early republic or later, purely by experience. The red background with gilt appears most frequently in end of Guangxu reign to the republic period.
For this type of item I would hope to have a hands on check. The pictures show no clear age traces and the gilt is in better condition than usual with early republic pieces.
