A superb and very large pottery figure of an attendant or official, dating to the earlier Ming Dynasty, 1400-1500 AD.
The figure stands of a high hexagonal plint in fine green-glazed robe with orange details. The belt in red pigment and the high hat in black pigment. Finely painted facial details.
The head is attachable as often seen on the largest figures from this period. He likely once held a wooden flag in his folded hands and is the kind of figure that were placed in front of an entourage.
Size: The figure measure c. 41 cm. Very impressive and heavy conversation piece!
Condition: Superb, finely preserved glaze and pigment, undamaged and no repairs.
