A superb quality very large pottery figure of a male attendant or official, dating to Ming Dynasty, 1368-1644 AD.
The figure is placed on a high hexagonal plint and wears a fine two-colour blue and turquoise glazed robe. The unglazed areas have pigmented colors in red, black and white. Finely painted facial details.
The head is attachable as often seen on the largest figures from this period.
The figure holds a box or a book in his arms.
Size: c. 48 cm. Very impressive and heavy conversation piece!
Condition: Superb, finely preserved glaze and pigment, undamaged and no repairs.
