Grand Ho-ho Epoque Kang-xi

Statuette in enamelled porcelain of China in the three colours Yellow, Green and Red of the green family.

At the end of the 17th century in China, Kangxi was the fourth emperor of the Qing dynasty. At that time, the symbolism of the "ho-ho" twins was very popular: the brothers were so named with two words, one of which meant "concord" and the other "union"; they were symbols of good understanding and harmony, the Chinese good luck charm. One carries a water lily, the other a round box. Unfortunately, the Ho-Ho have often been separated during sharing.

Our Ho-ho has several exceptional characteristics: Taller than most of these figurines, this Ho-Ho is depicted with a child clinging to his leg. The decoration of plant motifs and precious objects is present on all its sides.
The exceptional state of conservation of this piece should be noted
