Rare Antique Chinese Family Altar Figure As Fisherman, Circa 1900

This is a rare piece to begin with, but is made more uncommon by the pose that the fisherman has assumed. It is a somber piece, glazed in a darker yellow, green and brown. Indeed the mood of this piece is accentuated by the dark color his face.

Perhaps because of the solemn meaning of the figure, it has obviously been cared for and protected from harm. No losses, cracks or breaks. Even the bottom is smoother than most.

He stands 4 and 1/2 inches tall.

Circa 1900

Condition - Very Good. The overall condition is much 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 none of 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.
