Pair of Chinese character statuettes

Small pair of gilt bronze statuettes depicting two seated Chinese figures.
The man, arms outstretched, looks up to his left. He is seated on a block of quartz and draped in a simple garment that simply reveals his left shoulder and torso. Like an old Chinese sage, he wears a long finely chiseled beard, his very oval skull ends in a lock of hair.

The taller woman is seated with her feet crossed on a gilt bronze rock adorned with some foliage.

She supports with her right hand a very large umbrella in yellow sheet metal, while her left hand is delicately placed on her knees.

She wears a stylized three-ply douli. His garment is finely chiseled and bent at the waist by a belt.

The parasol she holds is removable.

19th century work in their original gilding.

Women's dimensions: H 17 cm x W 13 cm x D 13.5 cm
Dimensions man: H 17 cm x W 10 cm x D 9 cm
