Pair Chinese Shiwan Ware Pottery Figures

Pair Chinese Shiwan ware pottery polychrome figures.  The female holding a baby and is wearing an elegant headdress; the male is wearing a long beard and is holding a sword-like object.  These are thick and heavily glazed figures.

Shiwan figures functioned as the Chinese equivalent of English Staffordshire figurines. The human figures sometimes contrast flesh areas left in unglazed biscuit with glazed clothes and hair. Gestures and facial expressions are often dramatic.
