Chinese Tang Dynasty Pottery Horse & Rider
This pottery model of a horse and rider was made during the Tang Dynasty (AD 618 - 906). It is quite "heavily-potted" and has been "cold painted" in various coloured pigments, very good traces of which remain. In both hands of the rider are the corroded remains of whatever the rider was originally holding, now long since rusted away and lost.
Height 30.5 cm (12 inches). Looking inside the hollow body shows no sign of repair but, as should reasonably be expected, the fragile parts such as the legs and ears do show signs of repair/restoration. A nice example in good presentable condition.
