This standing sage with a blue palm fan (symbol of Authority) is glazed in the Sancai tradition of Jade Green, Cerulean Blue and Mustard Yellow. He also has some white highlights.
Size: 4 3/4 inches tall.
CONDITION The overall condition is as you would expect from an object of substantial age that has been displayed/handled/used, usually over the lifetimes of several owners. There is rubbing on the base and a very small area that appears to not have had the glaze reach in during manufacture. (See the front photo and note the very small area just above one shoe, where the green meets the white. Still in Good Condition.
This is one of the fabulous collection of Chinese Mudmen I purchased, that had been lovingly collected over many decades by a single owner. I purchased all 144 pieces, all in Very Good to Excellent Condition, with no breaks, cracks, or losses. 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.
