Rare ‘Snowman’ figure in Gloucestershire

20 June 2012Written by ATG Reporter

Seldom appearing at auction, this very rare English, Longton Hall porcelain figure of Guanyin, c.1750 will be offered at Chorley’s June 28, ceramics-focused sale in Gloucestershire.

At 4¾in (12cm) high, the piece is known as a 'Snowman' figure, named because of the thick white glaze that blurs any fine detail, giving a highly finished and smooth quality. Estimate: £2000-£3000.
