This seated figure is very well-detailed. His face has a smug expression. Features are very good. He holds a fan and a flywhisk, so the smugness may come from his position of authority and integrity. He is glazed in brown, green and blue. These singular figures are a congenial expression of friendship. sacrament or goodwill. Seems to me that using him as a gift for one of those reasons today would be very well received.
Size: 5 inches tall.
Condition: Colors are vivid. No cracks, chips or other losses. The usual rubs and roughness around the very bottom of the base. 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.
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.
