This seated sage is 4 and 1/2 inches tall. It is a well-detailed figure holding a fan (symbol of integrity) and scroll. The figure is glazed in the Sancai tradition in cerulean blue, mustard yellow and jade green, and accented in white.
It is in Very Good to Excellent Condition. The overall condition is better than you would expect from an object of substantial age that has been displayed/handled/used, usually over the lifetimes of several owners.
Marks: Incised "China" on base..
Condition: Very Good. The expected roughness around the base.
Circa: 1890 - 1919.
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.
When buying more than one item, we combine shipping. Ask me!
