A fine and rare pair of Kangxi style recumbent rams realistically modelled. Both rams are covered in a rich lustrous turquoise (peacock blue) glaze darkening which pools in the recesses of the carved details. The bottoms are unglazed, both fired on supports and the glaze evidenced running under and onto the base of one whilst the other has had the glaze ground off to achieve a more level surface.
For a similar pair please see the Rijksmuseum, Amsterdam, Inv. No. AK-RBK 15971 formerly in the R. May Collection illustrated in the book Chinese Ceramics in the Collection of the Rijksmuseum, Amsterdam the Ming and Qing Dynasties by Christiaan J.A. Jorg.

Christiaan J.A. Jorg tentatively dates the nearly identical pair of rams in the Rijksmuseum to the early 19th century.
One ram perfect, the other has a clear break on one horn which has been re-attached. There are some small firing lines (which are not damages).
