This very interesting gilt Budai is seated on a dragon-turtle. The dragon turtle has his mouth open showing very impressive teeth. The Budai is holding an ingot (some "oxidation"). He is quite heavy.
Size: 4 1/2" tall; 4" wide; 3 1/2" deep.
Condition: No breaks or losses. The "oxidation" previously mentioned. I have tried to accentuate it in the photos.
Circa: First quarter of the 20th Century.
Provenance: Chait Gallery.
