 Sold- with Oxford T.L. Test Certificate, purchased from Christie's, Amsterdam 
TWO SEPARATE GRAY POTTERY, CHINESE HAN Dynasty Horse and Rider with a Oxford Thermoluminenscence Certificate tested in 2 places is consistent with the date (Western Jin Dynasty, 265-317 AD) purchased from Christies in Amsterdam, Holland. The rider is a "foreigner," with tunic and hat. This gray pottery piece has traces of pigment and slip. There is also a crack on one of the legs. Minor restorations. Very unusual to have BOTH horse AND rider together. The rider comes with the Certificate of Authenticity from Oxford, England.
