The humble nature of this figurine of a male holding a tray is countered by a standout presentation of lively colors-turquoise attire, crimson red lips and eyes, a red resting block, a black and yellow rice hat, and bright gold accent. Striking.
A perfect use for mints, candy or even business cards, this is an eye-catching and unique figurine that, art-wise, seems to go beyond the usual cheery porcelain home decor depictions of Asian peasantry. His pensive face looks to tell many tales.
Origin: Unknown. Pre-owned
Dimensions: 8"H x 5 3/4"W x 7"D
Condition: Great. There are no chips, cracks, crazing, repairs or restorations. The left arm is missing some glaze from manufacturing, exposing hand painted strokes, an oversight we find to be more interesting than a flaw, but that is just our opinion. Overall, a beautiful collector piece.
