Exceptional Tang Dynasty Tomb Pottery Prancing Horse With Oxford TL Certificate
Period: Tang Dynasty, China, 618 to 907.
Size: This beautiful statue is approximately 23.2" tall.
Condition: Very good, original legs with professional repairs to them.
Description: This is a wonderful Tang Dynasty tomb pottery horse. This horse is still very detailed and is a beautiful color as well. The horse still has a lot of original pigment still remaining. This horse also has a very distinct look on its face. Three samples were taken by Oxford Authentication, the report states that samples B, under the prancing leg and C the buttocks area were consistent with the suggested Tang period, but sample A, under the head was affected by restoration and could not be dated. That's why this horse is priced accordingly, at 1/3 of its value. Otherwise this horse would be valued at $35,000 or more. Item Number Tang Pottery Prancing Horse #3.
