I have been remiss in not listing more of the mudmen from the two incredible collections that I bought. This is a favorite of mine, for a number of reasons. He is large and in really very good condition. Details are very well done, especially facial features, weave of hat, and the hand holding the teapot as well as the teapot. He is glazed in Cerulean Blue and Jade Green, in the Sancai tradition. The hat is a beautiful color, actually darker than the Mustard Yellow usually seen.
Country of Origin: China.
Size: 8 3/4 inches tall.
Signed: Incised "China" on base. I tried to photograph it by lifting the felt on bottom, but could not get a good photo of the word.
Condition: Very Good.
