This is a rare Chinese statue of the immortals Li Tieh-Kuai.He is always depicted as a lame beggar carrying a double gourd. This statue stand 12 l/2 inches tall.
Christies sold a similar set of 8 immortals for $12,500 and says they are from the first half 19th century. However, I now have a policy that states all Chinese porcelain I sell are dated 20th century to avoid any misunderstanding. Please do your research using the Christies information provided. The ones Christie sold were only 10 7/8 inches tall. This one is 12 l/2 inches tall. If you would like the link, please email me.
