Seated sages in this size are much less common than the usual smaller sizes. Additionally they have a teapot and cups, also rare embellishments.
Nowadays collecting mudmen has become increasingly popular. While most collectors are starting their collections with more common figures, some have progressed to a more serious level. Whatever your collecting preferences, learning about the meanings and desirable features.
They are glazed in the Sancai tradition of Mustard Yellow, Cerulean Blue and Jade Green.
The condition of this figure truly adds value. Are the colors still vibrant? Is there damage? Almost all mudmen will have some roughness around the base which is acceptable. However try to avoid broken or restored pieces, unless it is a truly rare piece.
Size: 6 inches tall.
Marks: Incised "Made In China" (this was used between 1920 - 1940).
Condition: Very Good Vintage Condition. The expected roughness around the bottom.
Circa: 1920 - 1940.
This is from my most recent purchase of a mudman collection. This collection has many rare and extremely rare pieces in exceptional condition.
