This was made to be quite utilitarian, since one needs to have the jug for washing calligraphy brushes. You might want to use it as a pen holder for your desk. As you are probably aware, I like the unusual touches.
He is glazed in the Sancai tradition in Cerulean Blue, Mustard Yellow. and Jade Green with brown accents. The colors are vivid.
This stands 4 and3/4 inches tall and is close to 4 inches across.
Condition - Very Good. The overall condition is better than you would expect from an object of substantial age that has been displayed/handled/used, usually over the lifetimes of several owners. He has the usual roughness on bottom.
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.
