A pair of Chinese famille verte enameled porcelain boxes formed as recumbent quails. Realistically modelled, the feathers under green, aubergine and yellow glazes, the interiors glazed turquoise. The underside of the boxes molded with a pair of tucked-in legs, left unglazed. Resting on carved fitted wooden stands.

Size: Each measuring 7" wide, 4.25" deep and 4-1/8" high. Height on stand 6"

Condition: Good condition. There appears to be a very small chip on one of the beaks, but I believe that this is just a light reflection. If required, I shall retrieve these from storage and take a closer picture.

Age: 19th/20th century
