This large chinese mudman figurines is about 7 3/4 inches tall. The base is about 9 inches by 10 inches. This item was made in Wanjian, China and also has the # 65 on it. This is signed "made in Wanjian China".
It is difficult to date this mudman but based on the following text this item was made on or after 1952. However, because of the low # I believe this item made in the 1950's.
Please note: "Imports into the states had to have the point of origin plainly stamped, so the pottery stamps can actually date the piece. If a mud figure has an indentation or a black or red stamp with "CHINA" (sometimes the "N" is backwards) or "HONG KONG", then it is from c. 1890 - 1919. Those figurines stamped with "MADE IN CHINA" or "MADE IN HONG KONG" date from c. 1920 - 1944. Occasionally you'll find "MADE IN CHINA" or "CHINA" stamped in red ink, dating from the late 1940s. I believe those that only show the "CHINA" in red ink from the late 1940s should have been stamped "MADE IN CHINA" and are few in number and may simply be a result of improper stamping (only part of the stamp being placed against the edge). From 1952 on, the mud figures have a stamp and a number."
