Li Bai Po is considered the greatest Chinese poet of the Tang Dynasty. This piece is fascinating, since the wine jug could be used for washing calligraphy brushes.
He is glazed in the Sancai tradition of Jade Green, Cerulean Blue and Mustard Yellow, with brown accents.
He stands 5 inches tall.
The overall condition is somewhat better than you would expect from an object of substantial age that has been displayed/handled/used, usually over the lifetimes of several owners. There is some rubbing on the base but no breaks or cracks. Still in Good to Very Good Condition.
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.
