A superb 62-63 cm. Lady with a fan and awesome mottled green glaze, Ming Dynasty 1368-1644 AD.
Exceptional, almost museum quality, pottery figure with fine pigments and glazing. The height and the fact that it's done in realistic life-like proportions makes this figure massive and very heavy. The head was made seperately as always with the largest Ming Tomb figure.
This is the 2nd. largest group we've handled and would have adorned the tomb of an important family during the middle-later Ming Dynasty.
Condition: Superb, a few very minor losses, but intact and thus rare. Finely preserved red pigment on the details.
