How to resist? I've found antique Chinese and Japanese erotic porcelain figures of a similar nature out there, mostly sold at auction, but I haven't found anther couple housed inside an orange, and a terrific orange at that! Early 20th century, and I think Chinese, though I've found similar couples listed as both Chinese and Japanese. Pretty great modeling of their bodies, with just the right hand-painted details! A great one to lend another dimension to a display of a few beautiful pieces of stone fruit! Fabulous.
2 3/4" d x 2 5/8" t. and in very good antique condition, with what looks perhaps like an old small chip to the interior rim of the lid, minor if so and not at all detracting.
