Chinese Mudman Standing Figure of the Old Bard Li Bai Po With Wine Jug and Cup, C 1930
Li Bai Po was a major Chinese poet of the Tang dynasty poetry period. Regarded as one of the greatest poets of the Tang Dynasty, often called China's "golden age" of poetry, Li Bai Po was both a prolific and a profound poet, as well as one who stretched the rules of versification of his time. Around a thousand yet existing poems are attributed to him.
This depiction stands 4 and 1/2 inches tall.
It is in surprisingly Very Good Condition. There is the usual roughness on the base, but only the slightest rubs around the base. The overall condition is certainly better than you would expect from an object of substantial age that has been displayed/handled/used, usually over the lifetimes of several owners.
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.
