Rare Chinese Water Jar For Washing Calligraphy Brushes In Form Of Fisherman's Bait Basket, c 1930

This is an unusual piece. It is actually a water jar for washing calligraphy brushes. It is in the form of a seated fisherman with a bait basket. He has his original fish on a line. Glazed in the Sancai tradition of Jade Green, Cerulean Blue, and Mustard Yellow. CONDITION No damage. Some rubs on bottom (at the base). 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. Circa 1930. This is one of the fabulous collection of Chinese Mudmen I just purchased, that had been lovingly collected over many decades by a single owner. 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.
