On the lower portion of the figure's base is a hand painted anchor mark in gold (with the cross mark towards the top and one circle on the top). This is a faux mark of the famous early Chelsea porcelain, which was copied by many throughout continental Europe in the 19th Century. . The influence of Sevres is very strong demonstrated by the rich colors, which can be seen in the imari-blue waist coat, and the top portion of her skirt; also the delightful yellow colored britches decorated with gold design. There is lavish gilding throughout both figures, including the fan the Lady is holding and is in a Rococo style.
The pair stands approximately six inches high; their bases are about three inches wide. Each one of them is missing one leaf tip, both of which was on the back side of the piece, and must be really closely examined to notice. Aside from that, I see no other damage to either figurine. All of the beautiful flowers are in fine condition.
