This is a very interesting piece. Two figures, possibly sages, are sitting and conversing; one holding a fan (symbolizing Integrity) and the other holding a scroll (learning). They are glazed in the Sancai tradition in Mustard Yellow, Jade Green and Cerulean Blue. This is 5 and 1/2 inches tall, and 4 and 1/2 inches across. Circa 1900. 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. There is some rubbing on the base but no breaks or cracks. A very small surface chip on back on the sleeve of one robe. Still in Good to Very Good Condition. 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.
