For a similar Guanyin figure, cf. P. J. Donelly, Blanc de Chine, 1967, fig. 76B, and pp. 139-140 for a discussion on this type of massive blanc-de-chine Guanyin.
Other example of these rare massive models were sold in our New York Rooms, 11 November 1977, lots 1, 2 and 4 from the Estate of the late Elinor Dorrance Ingersoll, and 9 November 1978, lot 205.
