Chinese Mudman Elder Sage With Peach, Symbol of Immortality - Circa 1920

The expression on this man's face really is intriguing. Perhaps he is contemplating immortality? He is glazed in the Sancai tradition of Cerulean Blue, Mustard Yellow and Jade Green. His colors are vivid.

He stands 4 and5/8 inches tall.

Circa 1920.

His Condition is Very Good. There is a tiny fleabite on the bottom of one sleeve. The overall condition is a bit 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, and some rubs on the bottom of the robe and shoes.

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.
