I think it is two of the Immortals.  I've seen them depicted riding deer.  You might want to research along those lines.  Maybe a Google search, and Google image search, with terms something like "Immortals riding deer," "Immortals deer,"  "Immortals seated on deer"...

 

If  they are Immortals, you can identify each if you can identify what each is holding:

These are Chinese,are they identical holding ruyi>

The charactes said something like flower blossom pleases the entire household.

May not be immortals,but blessings all around,from the ruyi to the deer for lonvegity.

beautiful piece and rather old.

Chinese want their antiques back,if you list them ,they will find them.
