Large Chinese late Qing dynasty Guangxu period Dehua blanc-de-chine porcelain figure of Guanyin standing in bare feet on a pedestal covered with lotus blossoms. This Goddess of Mercy, holding a scroll in her right hand, is dressed in a flowing robe and veil, her hair in a chignon and with characteristic elongated earlobes and downward gaze. Her serene facial expression is well executed. The glaze has the blue-gray tint characteristic of Dehua Guangxu monochrome porcelains. The deeply recessed base is glazed and the foot rim is unglazed and has tiny bits of grit adhering. Late 19th to early 20th century. 14” high. There are finely executed restorations to the tips of two fingers and to a thin chip on the back of the robe bottom that are not visible to the eye. There are a few tiny flea bites evident at the edges. This figure is from the private collection of a former American resident in Guangzhou and Beijing from 1983-1987.
