This blanc de chine figure of Shou Lao is shown in a rare pose. This time he is holding in his left hand a rosary symbolizing continuity and purity. His right foot is on a gourd shape sack (which holds the water of life) and the statue is standing on a rock.
The statue is extremely well defined and the details are fantastic - very crisp and clear. This is a 20th century piece to the best of my knowledge. At one time this figure had newspaper on the base and you can still see some of the imprints on the paper on this item.
This statue is about 7 l/2 inches tall and is in perfect condition as I see no breaks, chips, or cracks.
