Dehua White Porcelain Eight Immortals Figures / Statues, China
From the Dehua kilns (Fujian Province) in China, the jewel of porcelain production. These statues represent the legendary Taoist Immortals: 7 males, 1 female who originated in the Han Dynasty in about 200 BC. Zhong Liquan (with the fan); Zhang Guolao (musical instrument); Lan Caihe (flower basket); Lu Dongbin (sword); He Xiangu (lotus); Han Xiangzi (flute); Cao Guojiu (tablets); and Li Tieguai (crutch) form the group. I would guess that they are circa mid- to late-1900’s. They were acquired from an estate sale outside Beijing a few years ago. No cracks or chips. Perfect condition.
