Chinese Ming Dynasty Glazed & Painted Pottery Horse & Rider
This pottery model of a horse & rider was made during the Ming Dynasty (AD 1368 - 1644). It is made from a pinkish-pale brown pottery that has had the details of the horse's fittings picked out in yellow and green glazes. Most of the surface remains unglazed and has been "cold painted" in a base coat of white pigment on top of which further details have been picked out in red and black pigments. Note the detail especially of the mane of the horse and the robes of the rider.
Height 26 cm (10.25 inches). A nice example in very good condition.
For information: this is one of three Ming Dynasty pottery horses we recently acquired following the dispersal of a private collection. The others are being sold separately, one of which we have had TL tested by Oxford Authentications (see items stock numbers MA280 & MA281).
