An incredibly fine pair of potted porcelain specimen orchids with hummingbirds by German manufacturer Nymphenburg. The pair each depict a different single orchid with a curious hummingbird eagerly on the 'hunt' for nectar. Entirely hand painted the pieces are excellent examples of mid 20th century German porcelain and the quality that was produced by companies such as Nymphenburg. There is a couple of small losses, a flea bite chip to one orchid and a hairline (however stable) crack to another. These very slight losses are virtually only noticeable when pointed out and do not detract from the pieces and their beauty.
