A set of Chinese Ming Dynasty earthenware attendants, together with a green glazed palanquin. Each female figure is styled in a short robe, coloured a vivid green glaze, which covers a longer amber dress. Their hair is styled in an elaborate top-knot, tied with a red ribbon. Within their hands each figure holds an offering. The offerings that are depicted are not specific but it is insinuated that a liquid would have been required, maybe wine or water, and fruit of some kind. The palanquin is also coloured in a dark green glaze, with dark yellow accents and a black roof.
