This stunning pair of Chinese porcelain garden seats is a fine example of the Famille Verte palette, characterized by the rich green, red, and black enamel colors. Each seat features meticulously painted scenes depicting traditional Chinese figures in various settings, including garden landscapes and battle scenes, all surrounded by intricate floral patterns and raised relief detailing.
