I don't know about that plate...

But, the bronzes are Chinese. Unfortunately, they all look like modern reproductions that can be found on alibaba/aliexpress...

The first one, the incense censer, says "qian long nian zhi" or QIanlong Year Make (Made in the Year of Emperor Qianlong) on the bottom, but probably apocryphal.

I've specifically seen that rhino on aliexpress...

The female statue is of Chinese god, Guanyin:

Guanyin or Guan Yin (/ˌɡwɑːnˈjɪn/) is an East Asian bodhisattva associated with compassion as venerated by Mahayana Buddhists and followers of Chinese folk religions. She is commonly known as the "Goddess of Mercy" in English. The Chinese name Guanyin is short for Guanshiyin, meaning "[The One Who] Perceives the Sounds of the World".

(I'm only 95% sure of my analysis of their age, by the way!) | Associations | Articles | Exhibitions | Galleries |
