This older Chinese figure depicts an official of the empirical court. His traditional clothing consists of an embroidered robe over a skirt and a hat. The hat, color of his skirt, and the fact that he is seated might be indicative of a very high official. He wears a queue (long braid) and a beard. His white hair indicates he is an older man.
He is seated on what we now refer to as a garden stool. The stool is also decorated. His blue robe is decorated with an embroidered medallion (badge) of dueling dragons chasing the pearl as well as auspicious symbols on his skirt. These medallions also decorate each sleeve and the back. He is holding a sceptre in one hand and another object in his left which is green in color and which I cannot identify.
Of the group of 5 figures (shown near the end), this is the only one seated.
The figures shown in the group are listed separately and may or may not be still available.
This figure measures 11" high and is about 4 1/2" deep and 4" wide. He is in excellent condition. On the base there are 2 impressed marks with Chinese characters.
He is very similar to the seated figure in item #twt3320 which had some damage and sold 'as is'. This one does not have any damage.
Please note that these figures or similar ones (although perhaps not with as much detail and fineness) have been made for decades in various sizes and various levels of quality. This one is good and likely made in the 20th century.
