This is a beautiful large and heavy Chinese porcelain blue and white porcelain sculpture of Buddha with 5 children and standing on a cloud. It is just under 27 inches tall and about 35 lbs. We believe it is late 19th to early 20th century and has some old repairs and kiln flaws. There are several old repaired areas that had yellowed over the many decades since repaired. I removed most of the yellow and you can see some of the repairs including a filled in crack around one of the boys on his shoulder. Also the bottom has a repaired firing crack as you can see. These were often times because of the weight, damaged/cracked in the kilns. It is signed on back with the Ming Xuande mark but like I wrote above, not a period piece but late 19 early 20th c.
It is a beautiful and structurally sound piece that don’t come up very often. This will display well in your home or office or any fine Asian collection.
