This outstanding piece of porcelain depicting the God of Longevity,known as Shou-Sing to the Chinese people,is one of the finest porcelain figures I have ever seen for this time period.Made in a private kiln in the celebrated town of Jingdezhen,Jiang-xi Province.This kiln known as 'Yee-Hung-Tai' was famous for its fine porcelain figurines made at the end of the Ching Dynasty and at the beginning of the Republic.The superb clay quality and the fine and delicate colors seen on both the front and back of this beautiful flowing robe are really incredible. 'Shou-Sing'is shown pointing his right finger to the peach he is holding in his left hand.The bottom of the figure bears the mark of the Yee-Hung-Tai workshop.Circa:1900-1920 placing it between the end of the Ching Dynasty or at the beginning of the Republic. The condition is excellent with the exception of some professional restoration around the base area.Size:15 3/4" high.A great piece, professionally restored(only seen under black lite) with the wooden stand(seen in the 2nd enlargement) included in the purchase price.
