Shiwan Artistic Ceramic Figurine - Chinese Mudmen Playing a Board Game

Regular price $47.00

Product Description:  There are wonderful details on this Shiwan Chinese ceramic figurine. This fantastic pottery collectible features an ancient pose depicting two Chinese mudmen dressed in blue and white playing a board game.  Originating from the Shiwan Artistic Cermamic Factory (est. 1952), this hand-crafted piece has a glazed exterior, leaving some of the hands and faces unglazed.  There are two larger holes in the bottom base which extend up through the clay, to the head.  This was used to assist the craftsman with molding the piece with their finger or stick. There is an imprint on the bottom of the figurine China with a number.  A nicely crafted Shiwan pottery collectible which should be proudly displayed.
