VINTAGE CHINESE MUDMAN GOD OF PROSPERITY BANK VERY RARE BUDDHA -5" x 3 1/2"
Up for sale is a vintage six inch tall and very rare Chinese Mud Man or Mud figure in the form of a bank. This is the God of Prosperity and he is sitting on a base in a Buddha like pose. Like Buddha, his belly is exposed and he has a slit in his tummy for coins. He is marked China on the base and the "finger hole" has been made into the place to plug the bank (the plug is missing).
The front of the base says " God of Prosperity -Put Your Money In My Tummy And You Will Always Have Plenty. This figure is unusual in that his face, head, tummy, hands and feet are glazed with a flat brown instead of leaving them the natural clay color. His robe and base feature the traditional more shiny glazes.
