An unusual famille rose porcelain figure of the Daoist immortal Zhang Guo Lao holding a fishdrum. Height: 24.1 cm. c. 1800.

Minor paint retouching to edges of cap. No damage.

Zhang Guo Lao is the most eccentric of the immortals, skilled in alchemy and kung fu and sometimes depicted riding backwards on a white horse. As a representative of old age, he is associated with long life.
