What a wonderful addition to your collection of Chinese mudmen! The features are very good. He is colored in the Sancai tradition of Cerulean Blue, Jade Green, and Mustard Yellow. The fish represents abundance, and the staff accentuates his "older and wiser" status.
Country of Origin: China.
Size: 13 1/2".
Condition: Very Good. The colors are still vivid, with less than expected fading. A hairline crack is present across the fingers holding the staff. Usual roughness around the bottom.
Provenance: Chait Gallery.
