Pair of Chinese Ming Dynasty Painted Pottery Tiles - Lotus Buds

This attractive and unusual pair of pottery tiles was made during the Ming Dynasty (1368 - 1644). They are made from a dense, quiet highly-fired grey pottery and feature lotus buds just about to open. The details are particularly elaborate. The tiles have been "cold painted" in various brightly-coloured pigments, very good traces of which still remain. In places are good remains of ancient plant/root growths that still adhere to the surface.

The height of each tile is approx. 27.5 cm (10.75 inches), depth 11.5 cm (4.5 inches). Condition is very good although, as in invariably the case with such tiles, there is some surface wear and chips to the edges although there is no restoration or repair.
