A pair of chinese porcelain parrots each painted in green, yellow and black enamels and standing astride an integral rockwork base.
Dating from the Kangxi period (1663-1723), they stand 7 1/4inches (18.4 cms) high.
Each has a small chip to the beak covered with red lacquer, an identical small bare area to the top of the head (Part of firing process?) and some surface scratches. They are in otherwise good condition.
