Today we are delighted to offer for sale a lovely antique Chinese porcelain figure of the Chinese deity known as Shou Lao or God of Longevity. Shou Lao is one of the three Daoist Gods of Fu (Good fortune) Lu (Prosperity) Shou (Longevity). This finely crafted porcelain figural group, in the Famille Rose/Verte/Jaune colors depicts Shou Lao holding a peach, with this companion crane by his side. The figure is vividly polychromed in lovely colors. The sculture is stamped and marked on the bottom. The figure presents beautifully and in very good vintage condition, with very minimal wear/scuffing and patina. There is a very small chip on the tip of the gold object being held by the figure’s left hand; the neck of the bird has an old repair (not objectionable looking). This colorful and beautiful porcelain figure will make a fine addition to any curated Chinese porcelain collection. Fresh to the market!
