Vintage Chinese Netsuke - the Peach Seller and the Golden Ingot Bearer, a Pair, Brown Wood Stand

A pair of charming Chinese netsuke figures made of resin, hand etched and painted, signed on the underside.  Both come on a carved dark brown wood presentation stand.
The peach seller has a basket loaded with fruits - in Chinese art and literature the peach is a symbol of luck and longevity, while its blossoms, the first to bloom after a harsh winter, they represent rebirth and the start of a new year.
The ingot bearer - gold ingots are excellent symbols for attracting wealth, prosperity and success. Also known as ‘Sycee’ or ‘Yuanbao’, the boat-shaped ingots existed as ancient Chinese currency owned by emperors and high-ranking officials. They continue to be displayed at homes, offices and shops during the Chinese New Year as a sign of good fortune. Designed in a unique way to emit wealth chi, gold ingots are also available as gold bullion or bars. They could be used to create a wealth vase or as a Feng Shui application to invite wealth luck.
A charming pair of little figurines.
