A mirror pair of porcelain figurines of prancing horses with their grooms. They have a nice size and show movement. The grooms are having a tough time keeping them controlled.
 
The figurines have been molded and then glazed in thin aubergine, yellow and green glazes. The grooms have holes in their hands which would have held the reins. The horse harnesses have matching holes to fit the reins. The grooms also have holes in their ears for earrings or hair.  The detail in the molding is deep and well defined. I love the teeth and tongues of the horses. The glazes have good control.
 
A red mark of CHINA is stamped on one foot of both of the grooms.
