Large Chinese Porcelain Of A Goddess of Longevity, Holding A Vase, With A Deer Next To Her
Thanks to a kind browser, this is now identified. I have had it many years. It is attached to the base and I am afraid of injuring the piece if we try to remove it to find a seal or mark. The goddess is probably Ma Gu. Both she and the deer are associated with longevity.
This is a large piece, 17 1/4 inches tall, including the base.
This lovely piece has suffered damage to her one sleeve. I did not realize it until I ran my finger over the sleeve and it is rough. I do not believe it was a significant loss, since she looks lovely. The hat appears to have been made with two fashion 'scallops.' I believe this was in the manufacture.
It is circa 1920s to 1930s.
