Large Chinese Ming dyn. pottery figure court official!
A very interesting Chinese terracotta tomb figure, dating to the middle Ming dynasty, c. 15th. cent. AD.
We have handpicked a selection of exceptionally condition glazed and painted figures out of a large Chinese collection. Our figures are of a much better style and detail than most authentic figures on the market.

The figure depicts a haugthy or smug looking court official wearing a tall hat and a towel (?). Interestingly, his one sleeve is rolled up, so that his arm is bare. Very rarely seen feature.

Condition: Superb!

Size: 223 mm. in height.
