 SOLD ! Thanks to China ! 
An amazing pair. Famille Verte. Buddhistic lions with a blue color in combination with the typical " famille-verte-green " are very rare. This pair of lions is definitely NOT from the 19th cetury. This rare pair is from the Kangxi Period ( 1662 - 1722 )! Provenance : From an German Aristocratic collection. To the base of both lions is an old German inscription and an inventory Number from this Aristocratic collection. The original old inscription is done in an typical German eighteenth century manner. ( Please have a look at the last enlargement ). H : With original wooden stand : 33cm. ( Without wooden stand 21,5 cm. ) L : 23 cm. Condition : Perfect with some firing cracks,only visible to the base ( inside ) of the lions.
