A late Qing dynasty peacock blue Buddha, laughing or Hotei type, resting on clouds. Stand is included, and is one we found to fit the piece. Peacock blue figures usually center around animals, notably birds, but once in a while we find an unusual subject such as this one. Most of these that we find, and we find maybe one or two in a year, have the cloud portion in purple glaze. This one is odd in that it is all blue - in fact we've never seen an all blue one before. This little Buddha measures 2 1/2 inches tall and 3 inches long, larger than the typical miniature peacock blue figures. Unmarked.
