Chinese 19th century pair of blue and white porcelain snuff bottles.

Each painted to show a lying down spotty horse under an acacia tree. Although lying down the horse is looking up into the tree



Horses are the eighth sign of the zodiac and are much revered in Chinese folk lore and are the yang.
