Unusual Chinese Mudman Fisherman On Bamboo Raft With Bait Jug Circa 1930,
This is very similar to another very unusual mudman I have listed. Don't think because the collector who found these pieces over many decades found two of the same design that they are not very unusual. They have all been authenticated.
This piece is definitely not your common variety. He is very well-detailed. Pay special attention to viewing his hat, his bait jug, and his raft.
He is glazed in the Sancai tradition of Jade Green, Cerulean Blue and Mustard Yellow.
The base is incised with the factory or Province stamp #186.
Size: 2 and 3/4 inches tall.
Condition Very Good. The overall condition is much 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.
