Thank you for submitting your item for appraisal. This appears to be a pair of enamel colours decorated chinese porcelain figurines, depicting Qing Dynasty court ladies holding a ruyi (?), manufactured very recently purely for home decor. A ten character chinese impressed mark at the base. Such statues are quite often sold in hotel shops where the previous might have bought it in the late 1990s or even later. The estimate is based on auction results for similar. A hole in a statue is necessary to avoid firing flaws.
