Subject:Pair of Chinese Figurines
Posted By: Dave Blazer Sun, Jun 09, 2019 IP: 2601:1c2:4c00:3f4b:e

Hello, I'm trying to establish the age and identify the subject of two matching (mirror image) figurines that appear to be root carvings. A friend's grandfather is said to have acquired them in the 1920s.

They have what appear to be ivory teeth and eyes, and both are holding a scroll and have their opposite hand on a box or book.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

They're approximately 13.5" tall. | Associations | Articles | Exhibitions | Galleries |
