Chinese Tang Dynasty Painted Pottery Horse & Rider (AD 618 - 906)

This attractive pottery model of a horse and rider was made during the Tang Dynasty (AD 618 - 906). It is made from a buff-coloured pottery that has been "cold painted" in a base coat of a creamy-white pigment on top of which have been applied other coloured pigments. The horse is very well-proportioned and stands upright with its head turned a little to its left. The equestrian sits upright in the saddle that is moulded to the horse's back. 

Height 33 cm (13 inches). This is a very nice example in good presentable condition. It is clear that the vulnerable tail and rider have been re-stuck.
