Chinese Mudman Seated Sage With Hat, Flywhisk and Gourd, c 1920

This seated sage is a well-detailed seated sage with a gourd and flywhisk (the flywhisk being the symbol of leadership and the gourd a symbol of prosperity). The figure glazed in cerulean blue, mustard yellow and green. There is a small area on the brim of the hat that at first glance looks like a chip, but it is glazed over so I would guess this happened when it was made.

It is 5 and 1/4 inches tall.

Circa 1920

It is in Very Good to Excellent Condition with that exception. The overall condition is as you would expect from an object of substantial age that has been displayed/handled/used, usually over the lifetimes of several owners.

This is part of the fabulous collection of 144 vintage and antique mudmen I have just purchased, that had been lovingly collected over many decades. I purchased all 144 pieces, all in Very Good to Excellent Condition. 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.
