A 19th century Chinese parrot figure, well modeled in heavy porcelain, in blue with some worn cold paint overlay. The bird looks a little agitated, and we can only imagine what he might be saying. The piece is quite old and has some Chinese calligraphy on the bottom. Cold paint accents have worn off over time, especially on his beak, but the piece is excellent with no damage. A Lovely old piece measuring 8 and 1/4 inches (21cm) tall. Late Qing dynasty, late 19th century, Tongzhi to Guangxu periods.
