moreA pair of silver tone and gold tone figurines depicting seated men in traditional Asian dress. One figure, with crossed arms and feet, wears a round hat, a beard and ponytail; the other figure has arms and legs uncrossed, and wears a mustache and a four-pointed hat. Both figures have flattened bottoms so that they will sit upright on a shelf with their knees over the edge. These men heavy enough to bookend small to medium books, or can stand alone. They add very different and unexpected decoration to a shelf or bookcase.
When I purchased them at auction I was told they were metal, the have the feel of heavy iron stoneware, but have no areas of wear so it's impossible to really know. Nonetheless, they are stunning and stately and add whimsey to room décor; whether Asian, modern, minimalist or French country.
The colors of these figures are true to the pictures and there is no evidence of damage.

morePurchased from Skinner Auction House several years ago, they appear to have no evidence of damage. I thought the figure on the left would have a fishing pole, but there is no hole in the hand where one would be inserted; so the pieces haven't been modified.
Given the material they are made of, there is a natural texture on the surface of these figures. They are substanctial and heavy, but not as heavy as bronze. less
