01.09.24: In my opinion regarding LOT 1276: I note that all figures are presently intact and fit comfortably in accompanying stands, displaying various natural inclusions throughout; the figure of a court lady has minor chip with hairline to the underside of the basket and a small hairline to the ribbon next to the basket, both of which have been lightly reinforced; the Buddhist deity exhibits a chip to the top end of the arrow/ staff; and the carved pond scene has a couple minor chips to the edge of the lower lotus petal and one to the stem, as well as a small hairline to the petal
