A very interesting pair of late 18th. century Chinese painted wood carvings of a seated dignitary and his wife. They are painted in natural colours and have beautiful serene looks on their faces The robes are further applied with gesso to give the appearance of thick embroidery. They are 33 cms. high and in very good condition apart from some age wear to the paint.
A good 19th. century Chinese hardwood carving of two Dogs. One has a puppy on it's back and they have inlaid glass eyes. There is a small crack to the base as can be seen in the photograph but it is otherwise in good condition. It is 33 cms. high.
