A pair of 19th century porcelain falcons, the beaks with gilded highlight, the plumage in polychrome glazes.

In Chinese culture, the falcon represents keen vision, boldness and swiftness; Europeans believe that it symbolises liberty, victory and freedom - be it spiritual, moral or emotional; and in ancient Egypt the bird embodies the human soul. It may be concluded that the positive connotation of the flacon is a worldwide phenomenon and that this pair bestows upon its owner grace and humanity.

These noble birds will provide colourful interest to an interior.
