Pair of earthenware "boy-on-buffalo" figurines, probably game-pieces, some legs missing. 24.4 and 23.5 grams, each about 2-1/2". Very cute little handmade figurines of gray buffaloes with orange-and-white boys mounted on their backs (identical poses), the heads full (just a bit worn) and well detailed but several of the legs missing, light surface encrustation, their intended use unknown but from a set of several found on the wreck. With original lot tags from Nagel auction (Stuttgart, Germany) of 2000. From the Tek Sing, sunk in 1822 in the South China Sea
