A pair of Chinese biscuit porcelain figures of boys standing on rock bases, painted in the famille verte enamels on the biscuit.
These are a rare and finely modelled pair of boys or scholars. They are painted in the famille verte palette of tranlsucent enamels painted directly onto the fired biscuit porcelain which makes the colouring softer and more delicate.
