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.
