Lot 717 (The Asian Works of Art Auction, 20th January 2021)
Sold for £50
The boat. All figures appear to be present, though not all with complete 'oars'.
There are small holes to the top section of the boat cabin that suggest pieces that insert there are missing. One foot of the rectangular base is a replacement.
The figure with bird has a crack to back. The other figure is missing events from each hand.
- these defects are all shown in added images.
