In the days when men were required to take an aptitude test in China, this would have been used as a congratulatory gift on passage. He carries a peach and flywhisk, the peach symbolic of long life and the flywhisk symbolic of leadership.
(Other than being a great conversation piece, this would be a unique gift for a number of occasions; graduation or promotion come immediately to mind.
This little treasure stands 4 and 1/2 inches tall.
It is well-detailed with great facial expression. The figure is beautifully glazed in blue, yellow and green.
It is in Very Good to Excellent Condition with no breaks or losses.
I have just purchased a fabulous collection of Chinese Mudmen that had been lovingly collected over many decades. I purchased all 144 pieces, all in Very Good to Excellent Condition, with no breaks, cracks, or losses. I will be listing all of them, and of course will consider a reduced price if one were to purchase all or a large number of them. I am listing them at very affordable prices individually as well.
