These outstanding gems often get overlooked by collectors. I do not know why, I love them. They are very hand intensive, made by pressing white porcelain images, sculpting and applying to a white base. Very high fired and subject to kiln damage. The ones that avoid any damage come out to be true beauties. This one is several decades old, shows a fisherman. It is about 2 5/8" tall.
