Thank you all for the comments and added information.  I still need to catalog this bottle and appreciated the fact that I can use your collective knowledge to assist me in this process. Often I can gain insight relatively easy with my own research, but the theme on this bottle had me stumped.  Thus a more of a asking for help request on the initial post.   I was going the same direction as George's comments thinking it was one of the eighteen Luohans;i.e., the Dragon Tamer Luohan.  But that did not quite fit.  I do believe Richard provided the right direction with the figure of Nezha being represented in an older more tradition form.  The Chinese cartoon or comic representation Nezha today is quite different and very modernized. 

Once I get the bottle cataloged I come back with a more comprehensive description and more views of the bottle.  Thank you all again for the comments and help, Charll
