Chinese Mud Figures Water Buffaloes and Boy Figures
This is a neat group of vintage Chinese mud figures. There are two water buffalo and one has a boy on its back who is holding a rope, which is attached through the nose of the other water buffalo, which has the boy's hat an pack on it's back. The detail on these is amazing, including being able to see the little boy's fingers and toes and the back of his shirt flying up as he rides on the water buffalo. The water buffaloes are simply marked on the underside with an incised CHINA 7 mark on one and an incised CHINA 8 mark on the other. The condition is very good with no chips, cracks or repairs and the rope/string is still quite strong. The water buffaloes are each about 5.5 inches long and the one with the boy on the top is about 2.75 inches high. Y
