Chinese Mudman on Flambe Stump - Vintage
This traditional mudman figurine is a detailed depiction of a Chinese man resting on a stump beautifully glazed using the flambe technique. There is some sort of tool on the right side and another in his right hand. The figure is very detailed and the accentuated musculature gives the impression that the man likely is taking a rest from work. Like many mud man figures, he has a straw hat, his lying on the left. He seems to be gazing thoughtfully into air, maybe thinking of what he will do when his work is done.
The figurine is approximately 3" tall and approximately 3.75" wide, measuring from one side to the other. There is no damage. There appears to some type of marking incised on the base, possibly a single Chinese character or a factory mark. The figure dates to the latter part of the 20th century.
