This seated sage is holding a palm fan which is the symbol of authority. It is glazed in the Sancai tradition in Jade Green, Cerulean Blue and Mustard Yellow.
He is well-detailed, even to the expression on his face.
He is 4 and 1/2 inches tall.
His condition is Very Good, with the usual roughness on the base and bottom. 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 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.
