Late Ming - Early Qing Dynasty Buddha Figures 17th - 18th Century

Matched pair in rare blue glaze, possibly a pair of roof tiles.  Each measures 10" tall x 4" wide x 3.75" deep

One figure has old staple repair, which is more apparent when viewed from the rear.  Staple repair has its origins n China, several centuries ago, before the invention of glue and epoxy. Ceramic restoration was once the work of jewelers and metalsmiths.  This staple repair was probably done in the 19th century.  These staple repairs attest to the collector's love and value of the figure.

Both pieces have old collection numbers scratched into the bottom (see photos).  Also, these are stamped 'CHINA', which shows they were imported from the Far East, into the United States between 1891 and 1920.  However, these figures are considerably older than 1891.
