This is a well-detailed figure holding a fish. The figure is glazed in Sancai tradition in cerulean blue, mustard yellow and jade green. The fish represents abundance. The hat is special; rarely seen. I can not find its meaning at present, but I remember it has special significance.
Size: It is 7 3/4" inches tall.
It is in Very Good Condition. The overall condition is 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 122 antique mudmen I have just purchased, that had been lovingly collected over many decades. These are primarily very large and rare pieces, including unusual pieces and many women. I purchased all 122 pieces, all in Very Good 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.
