THE PROPERTY OF A CHARITABLE TRUST, SOLD BY ORDER OF THE TRUSTEES
A LARGE DEHUA FIGURE OF GUANYIN
The bejewelled figure is modelled standing on a wave base with lotus buds and leaves. She holds a basket with a fish in her right hand while her other hand holds her long loosely flowing robes that fall just short of her feet. The reverse has two impressed marks reading "Fujian Dehua zhi zao" that may be translated as "made in Dehua, Fujian" within a double gourd, and a six-character seal mark within a square.
