Dating Chinese items can be difficult, but it is generally accepted that the porcelain and pottery exported from China (Tariff Act of 1894) that from 1890-1920 the "China" stamp was used. After that, the exports were to be marked "Made in China". In workmanship, enamels used, I place this statue figurine of a woman Circa 1890-1920. It has both the China impressed stamp and a Chinese Character stamp typical of that era. These figures originally came in pairs a man and a woman, figures of renown, emperor and empress, refereed elders, or deity personages of China. This lady Pink Famille (of the pink family) figurine may be He Xian'gu, one of the eight immortals. She is a large 10" in height. She is in very good condition, the firing crack on the base is a factory flaw common with this type of pottery. She has a very minor enamel loss on her skirt as pictured. A lovely beautiful pottery Pink Famille figure to cherish and admire.
