This porcelain figure is based on a carefully detailed representation of Budai (1644–1911) in the Museum’s collection, an example of the Dehua ware produced for both trade and export in Fujian province. The original figure’s lustrous glaze and skillful modeling illustrate why Dehua porcelain became fashionable in Europe, where it was usually identified by the French term blanc de chine
, or china white.
High- gloss porcelain. 6''H x 6 3/8''W x 5''D.
