Chinese Ming Dynasty Glazed Pottery Figure
This pottery figure was made during the latter part of the Ming Dynasty (1368 - 1644). The figure wears a long flowing robe and holds some form of offering. The body is coated in an attractive green glaze, the unglazed surface "cold painted" in black and white pigments. In places the glaze has acquired a silvery iridescence, a result of long burial in damp conditions.
Height 20.5 cm (8 inches). Presentable enough condition although close examination does reveal that the head has been broken and re-stuck at the neck and the body has been broken and re-stuck at the legs. Patch of flaked glaze from the back.
Recently acquired from a private Scottish collection.
