Tall Chinese Ming Dynasty Iridescent Glazed Pottery Figure
This "heavily-potted" figure dates to the Ming Dynasty (1368 - 1644). Note the details of the clothing, the facial features and the head gear. The figure stands upon an integral hexagonal base. The head has been made separately and slots into a hole at the neck. The body is coated mostly in a green glaze that has acquired an attractive silvery iridescence due to its long exposure to moisture. There is also amber glaze to the end of one sleeve and the bottom of the robe. The head and lower part of the figure have also been "cold painted" in orange, red, white and black pigments.
Height 38.75 cm (15.25 inches). There is a chip to the back of the neck on the body, and also to the base edge. The glaze has flaked away in places. However, there is no restoration or repair and this remains a good-sized and attractive example of its type.
