Figural representations in cloisonné enamel appear to be extremely rare and only a few related examples appear to have been published. A pair of seated female figures, from the A.W. Bahr Collection, in the Metropolitan Museum of Art, dated to the Qianlong period or later, which share a very similar rendering of the facial features to those of the present figures, are illustrated by B. Quette, Cloisonné: Chinese Enamels from the Yuan, Ming and Qing, Singapore, 2011, p. 297, no. 142. Compare, also, a pair of cloisonné figures of ladies sold at Christie's Hong Kong, 30 May 2012, lot 3927.
