Description: modelled seated cross-legged with a nodding head and articulated tongue and hands, crossed swords marks in underglaze-blue.

Condition Report: The male, on the left in the catalogue illustration: the back of his head, his right earlobe and his neck are restored; possibly covering haircrack/s or chip/s. The tip of his tongue is restored. His upper left body, including his left breast, left shoulder and belly has overspray; it is possible that the restoration is covering a haircrack and the rest of the overspray has extended in the adjacent areas; however it is difficult to determine the exact nature of the damage. The end of his left sleeve has restoration, possibly covering a small chip. All of the restorations are well done and not easily detectable or disfiguring. The female example, on the right in the catalogue illustration: is in good condition except from some minor abrasions along the edges of her tongue.
In response to your inquiry, we are pleased to provide you with a general report of the condition of the property described above. Since we are not professional conservators or restorers, we urge you to consult with a restorer or conservator of your choice who will be better able to provide a detailed, professional report. Prospective buyers should inspect each lot to satisfy themselves as to condition and must understand that any statement made by Sotheby's is merely a subjective qualified opinion.
NOTWITHSTANDING THIS REPORT OR ANY DISCUSSIONS CONCERNING CONDITION OF A LOT, ALL LOTS ARE OFFERED AND SOLD "AS IS" IN ACCORDANCE WITH THE CONDITIONS OF SALE PRINTED IN THE CATALOGUE.

Dimensions: height 12 1/2 in.
