Lovely pair of Chinese carved soapstone figures, a man and a woman, each with its own separate, rectangular, pedestal base. The female figure holds a fan in one hand and the other hand is behind her body and it appears that she is holding something in that hand as well. Her hair is dressed in two knots on each side of her face, and also has a long, ungathered strand down her back. She wears long, flowing robes. The male is holding a fan and wears an ornamental head dress with two flaps touching his shoulders. He too is attired in long flowing robes and his is belted with a tasseled sash. Each of the figures has some little dings on the soapstone as can be seen in the photos, hardly a major issue but called to your attention nevertheless. The edges of the pedestal bases also have dings which could be ground or filed down.
