Antique Satsuma Figure Kannon Goddess Of Mercy Guanyin Elephant:
Up for sale is this beautiful, old statue of, whatis believed to be,the Goddess of Mercy and Compassion, Kannon (Kwan Yin) sitting on the back of an elephant. The piece rests on a wooden base, carved to fit the shape of the elephant. I am guessingthat this is Japanese Satsuma pottery as marked, in red ink,on theunderside of the elephant. The wooden base measures approx. 10" at it's widest point; theelephant figure measures approx. 81/2"at it's widest point; the entire figure on the base measures approx. 9" tall; and the figure, without the base, measures approx. 7 3/4" tall.The figure is in good condition.Please note: the wooden base looks to have been carved out to fit a lamp cord.
Not being an expert on oriental pottery, I'm not sure when this piece was made--but please check out the photos and feel free to ask any questions.
U. S. buyer to pay$25.00 shipping (this includes insurance). International buyers to pay $50.00 shipping.(VA residents please add 5% sales tax.)
