I bought this figure of a monkey many years ago. It's identity is still a mystery to me. The orange lustre caught my attention. In those days I was collecting Royal Lancastrian lustre wares. But the mark below was Japanese. He seems to be dressed as a Buddhist priest (?). It reminds me of the work of the Dutch ceramicist Jozef Mendes da Costa. Any input on this piece would be helpful to me.
