A large and very impressive tomb pottery horseman, Chinese, 1368-1644. This horse and rider comes with the official ThermoLuminescence test from Kotalla lab, dating it to the later Ming Dynasty.*
A rare tomb pottery officer that we recently purchased as part of a small group.
The pottery horseman a high-ranking soldier equiped with a bow case at one side and a quiver at his other side, he is clad in body armor in blue and torquise. He is riding a large white horse.
Size: 36 cm. high and 28 cm. wide - a massive piece.
Comes with the original TL test, a signed COA and unlimited guarantee for authenticity.
*NB: The TL test show that the head of the figure 'seems to be restored', whereas the sample from the body came out as burned in Ming Dynasty.
We've had the head examined and it's intact so the flawed result from the test of the head sample is possibly to lack of material or comtamination of the sample.
