Lot 154: THE LUCKY GODS HEHE ERXIAN
November 19, 2016
Vienna, Vienna, AustriaLive Auction
Sancai biscuit porcelain. China, Qing dynasty approx. 18th cent.
Very nice, smaller depiction of both Hehe 和 合, gods of luck who stand for "marital harmony". Erxian means "the two Immortals". They were also wedding gods, and one of the He characters means i.a. "to mate". Both Hehe stand on a rocky, open-worked base and are partially surrounded by or resp. holding coins. A minor flawed area, altogether good condition.
