Fine Chinese Tang Dynasty Painted Pottery Saddled Horse (with Oxford TL Test)
This fine pottery model of a horse was made during the Tang Dynasty (AD 618 - 906). It is made from a pale buff-coloured pottery that is relatively highly-fired. The horse stands alert with mouth open and head turned to its left. On its back is a moulded saddle and blanket. The surface was "cold painted" with pigment after having been fired.
It is a good size with a height of 40 cm (15.75 inches). This horse is in exceptional condition as we hope our photos demonstrate. It is available to view at our gallery.
Included is the Thermoluminescence Analysis Report from Oxford Authentication, the only testers of ancient pottery accepted by all major dealers, auction houses and museums worldwide; this confirms the date of manufacture as "between 900 and 1,500 years ago".
