These Ernst Bohne Söhne porcelain models take the form of a Chinese couple, who sit with their legs crossed. They have large bellies and ears, and broad grins on their faces. Both figures wear parcel gilt collared shirts and loose robes, decorated with colourful flowers. Characteristic of ‘pagode’ figures, the figures’ heads nod, and their hands and tongues move. The pair are designed to surprise and delight all who have the pleasure of beholding them.
Each figure is signed with the underglaze symbol for Ernst Bohne Söhne, as well as an impressed ‘EBS’ mark.
