A famille rose figural group of the 'Laughing Twins', Hehe Erxian, Jiaqing. Photo Bonhams.

Amusingly modelled striding forward together, one with a leafy stem issuing a lotus pod and bud over his right shoulder, his left arm wrapped around his companion holding a basket-weave box, both figures with cropped hair enamelled in grisaille above rosy cheeks and laughing broadly. 23cm (9in) high. Estimate £4,000 - 6,000 (€4,800 - 7,200). Unsold.
