A Dehua porcelain figure of Guanyin
Late Qing/Republic period
The Bodhisattva seated in the posture of royal ease leaning upon an arm-rest, attired in billowing robes and holding a ruyi scepter in her left hand and mala beads in her right, her full face framed by pendulous earlobes and surmounted by a high chignon held by a hair pin, her back bearing a faintly impressed double-gourd shaped mark from the He family kilns, possibly reading He Chaozong, (right thumb restored, red pigment added to eyes and ears).
