Emperor and Empress of China figurines sitting in royal chairs.  Emperor is holding gold  and jade beads. He has gold trim on hat and collar.  He is dressed in heavily patterned dark and light green costume.  Empress has matching patterns in her dress with gold trim on skirt and headdress.  No chips or cracks.  There is a space in the beads.  I've seen this described as beads missing but is true in all the versions of these figurines I have seen and there is no mark where beads would have come off so I believe the artist did it to create the impression of holding the beads.  11 1/2" high, 5 1/2" wide.  Each weighs 3 3/4 lbs.
