This piece is notable for its charming and naturalistic depiction of the ducks; see a related carving sold at Christie's New York, 30th November 1984, lot 433. For an example portraying two ducks, but with the head of one resting on the back of the other, see one sold at Christie's New York, 16th October 2001, lot 213.

A pair of mandarin ducks is symbolic of fidelity and a happy marriage, and pieces such as the present carving would have been appropriate wedding gifts.
