Vintage Chinese 'Mud Man' | Fisherman Figurine (10740)
c.1950's-1960's. Made at the Shiwan Artistic Ceramic Factory, China.
This incredible figurine of a fisherman with his caught fish, is glazed with brown, tan, sky-blue and white and has raw clay for his skin. There is a marked difference in texture of the man's skin versus the coloured glaze.
He sits on a reflowing/drip glazed base with brown/blue/earthen tones.
The expression on his face is amazing--he looks lost in deep thought.
This is a detailed sculpture, down to finger and toenails!
*This would make a wonderful gift for the Fisherman in your life, this Christmas.*
Chinese Mud Men have an interesting history - and are collectable.
This gorgeous man measures 140mm wide x 130mm deep x 175mm high.
He is in excellent condition--as is his fish! The red fishing line may not be original and can be easily changed.
