Rare Chinese Ming Dynasty Painted Pottery Tile - Bird

This rare and unusual pottery tile was made during the Ming Dynasty (1368 - 1644). It is made from a dense grey pottery and features a bird in high relief. The bird has been "cold painted" in white pigment and there are also faint traces of red and blue pigments in places. This tile would originally have been one of a series of similar tiles. To the ends and back remain traces of the original white mortar.

Length 28.5 cm (11.25 inches), height 14 cm (5.5 inches). As is more often than not the case with such tiles, there are losses and repairs; there is a large chip to the top right, although this is mainly to the reverse of the tile, and there are minor repairs to the "feathers".
