Tall Chinese Sui / Tang Dynasty Pottery Groom Figure
This fine pottery figure of a servant, probably a groom, was made during either the Sui Dynasty (AD 581 - 618) or the early part of the Tang Dynasty (AD 618 - 906). It is made from a cream-coloured pottery and is quite highly fired, having a distinct ring when tapped. The figure stands in a slightly bowed position with hands clasped together across his chest. Note the fine detail of the face and the head gear. In places are remains of red and black "cold painted" pigments.
This figure is of good size with a height of 34.5 cm (13.5 inches). There are signs suggesting the head may have been broken and re-stuck at the neck, but overall condition is exceptional.
