We are delighted to offer this pair of medium size antique Chinese Emperor and Empress ivory carvings. The royal couples are wearing the imperial Ming Dynasty robes carved in low relief. The motif of the emperor depict a of seven dragons frolicking above the waves. His left hand holds a taotie masked sword, while his right hand strokes his long beard in a thoughtful but dignified manner. The empress is wearing a well carved phoenix crown, her robe depicts four phoenixes flying with cloud motifs. In view of the "yu-yee" (as-you-wish) held in her right, and the pointed finger of her left, the empress is subtlely in the gesture of bestowing blessings.

The natural vmaterial is beautifully marked and grained, with an elegant cream white color on both front and back sides. It bears an aged look and is attributed to the early 1900s. The carving measures eight inches plus a one inch height wood base. There is no damage other than one 0.25 inch hairline to the rear of the crown. Overall, this ivory carving is in excellent condition.
