Fine Chinese Tang Dynasty Painted Pottery Figure (AD 618 - 906)
This rare and interesting pottery figure was made during the Tang Dynasty (AD 618 - 906). It is fairly highly-fired, having a distinct ring to it when tapped. It has been "cold painted" in white, red and black pigments, good amounts of which still remain. Note the details to the facial features, clothing and head gear suggesting this is a foreign groom or servant. He stands as if in attendance awaiting instructions! On the surface in places, particularly to the back, are mineralised burial deposits.
Height 24 cm (9.25 inches). There is no sign or restoration or repair; a very good figure in fine condition.
