A small biscuit-fired turquoise, 'aubergine' and yellow glazed moulded stoneware figure depicting Wen Chang (文昌王), the Chinese god of culture and literature, seated on an acanthus leaf throne. This item was probably made for a home altar (possibly in Shanxi province) in the 16th or early 17th Century, during the second half of the Ming dynasty. Condition: the head has been broken at the neck and reglued and there are firing losses to the aubergine enamels at the back; there are no further damages and there has been no restoration. 14cm (5.5 inches) high.
