A quaint pair of Ming Dynasty court attendants of small size with a sancai-glazed surface. The attendants are shown standing on an integrated rectangular base, wearing long-sleeved court robes in ochre and green with faces unglazed and showing traces of balck pigment that define their features. The male attendant wears a conical hat and holds a yellow teapot in his right hand, while the female attendant has her hair bound high up on the head and is carrying a cloth.
Period: Ming Dynasty, 14th – 17th cent. AD
