KUTANI SOMETSUKE BLUE AND WHITE KANNON, SIGNED
KUTANI BLUE AND WHITE hand painted SOMETSUKE porcelain figural Kannon (Qwan Yin) of unusually fine quality. Kannon is portrayed here in a serene position of devotion hands enfolded around a scroll. The Goddess is barefoot and is portrayed here in 19th century or earlier robes. Kannon is signed with an impressed charcter mark and a small blue hallmark on the biscuit base.
I have a special fondness for the Goddess of Mercy, and this early devotional figure is exceptional in every way.
