Green glazed figures

Hi, could you tell me where can I find out about some figures that I have. It appears to be a Madonna figure, with some other figures also ... the principal figure, the Madonna, is on a carved wood base. It is a teal or aqua color.

When I further examined them I did see what may say "China" on the base of the large figure. The small figures have no marks at all on bottom.


A Guanyin with five of the Eight Immortals

These figures are quite famous figures in the Chinese mythology. The large figure with the child in her arms is Guanyin - the Goddess of Mercy.

The five small ones are five out of a set of eight "Immortals". They are all well know in the Chinese history of myths and stories and are distinguished by the attributes they carry.

Sincerely,
Jan-Erik Nilsson
