Group of four Chinese cloisonne figures of Immortals. Chinese, ca. mid 20th century. These seem to be statuettes of Taoist Immortals (xian), heavenly figures that aid human beings. One appears as an Emperor, and the other three seem to be advisors or philosophers. Enamel on metal bodies with heads (possibly Bakelite?) and wood bases. Good condition, one base is broken, but just needs to be re glued. All figures about 9" tall.
