There are a lot of things that excite vintage seekers—pairs—pairs of anything gets our blood flowing yall! It’s so hard to find pairs! The fact that these pieces are over 100 years old & they are still together is amazing! They are incredibly done. The scene is absolutely the stuff Chinoiserie Chic Dreams are MADE of! They would be beautiful flanking a piece of art, platter or just on their own. They do have signs of aging with crazing. One has a tiny chip under the edge. They are in excellent antique condition!
