Antique Vintage Chinese Hand Painted Slip Cast Porcelain Figurine
Item- Antique/Vintage Slip casts porcelain figurine, male. Hand painted.
We are very pleased to be able to offer for your consideration this Chinese figurine.
This old Chinese figurine is of a rather emaciated man standing in a what looks like a yoga pose, standing on his left leg with his right leg raised and crossed in front of him. This figure is made of high fired porcelain and hand painted with stains and glazes. It is a early molded piece, there are traces of the original mold parting lines on the two sides of the base. The triangular cut outs on the front of the base are decorative as well as providing venting during the firing process. The figures colorful robe consists of hand painted flowers. The makers stamps can be seen clearly on the bottom.
This figurine is approximately 14 inches tall, 3 3/8ths inches wide, by 2 3/4 inches front to back. This figurine weighs approximately 2 pounds 13 ounces.
Condition - This figurine is in very good shape. The only issue we can call your attention to is a firing artifact- there is a small fracture that occurred during the firing process, it is located on the figures face, it starts at the corner of the right nostril and runs up the cheek to just below the right eye (see picture).
If you are a collector of antique or vintage Asian artworks or figurine, this piece will make a beautiful addition to your collection.
