One Sage is holding a fan, which is the symbol of Authority. Wei-chi can be very challenging I understand, so it is reasonable that the second sage is considering his next move carefully.
This is glazed in the Sancai tradition in Mustard Yellow, Cerulean Blue and Jade Green.
This is 4 and 3/4 inches tall and 3 and 3/4 inches across.
They are in Good to Very Good Condition with no breaks, cracks or losses. The base is rough and there is slight rubs on the base. There is one rub on the bench in back (under the sage in the yellow and green robe). 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.
