A chinese Blanc de Chine figure of Magu with a fawn at her side looking up at her. Magu is standing on a rocky base in flowing robes holding a ewer in both hands, the fawn supporting a basket of flowers on it's back. Impressed double marks on the upper back.

The double gourd mark reads "Dehua"

The square seal reads Puji Yuren...."the vastly accomplished fisherman", and is one that was used by the potter Su Xuejin (1869-1919). Su was a late Qing-dynasty master figure modeler at the Dehua kilns and he is known for his excellent imitations of late Ming-dynasty Dehua porcelain sculptures and he affixed this mark on some of his best works.
