CATALOGUE NOTES

Chinese glazed biscuit porcelain figure of the HeHe ErXian Twins, Chinese Immortals of Harmony and Mirth. They are posed seated upon a ridged octagonal base with arms around each other's shoulders in a  gesture of fellowship. The twins are dressed in white and aubergine robes with floral sprigs and medallions. One holds a round lobed box; the other, a flower. Their faces are well modeled and display pleasant laughing expressions. The decoration is finely painted in bright enamels. The underfoot is left in biscuit.
