Mid Century Chinese Chalk Ware Empress and Emperor Figures (Bookends) on Dragon Thrones, a Pair
They are complete - so often the 'hat finial or button' piece is either damaged or missing.
These two statues are overall in excellent condition and were made in the USA. They are ivory in colour with light tan / light brown shading, and are quite heavy. A regal addition to any home.
As these are heavy, they can be used as bookends.
Measurements approximate. Male is slightly larger.
Weight approx 5lbs each.
Chalkware flourished during the mid-century modern era (1945-1965) as an expressive medium for the home, serving many types of taste and types of decorative needs.
