This is a traditional Chinese candle stand which can be seen by the small hole on center of the top dish. The traditional candle has a bamboo stick attached to the bottom and the candle would be secured by inserting it into the small hole. Candle holders have been a fixture in China since the Three Kingdoms period (210 AD) while the earliest surviving candles originated in the Qin dynasty (221 – 206 BC), and were made from whale fat.
