Chinese Ming / Qing Dynasty Glazed Ridge Tile - Horse & Rider
This large and impressive detailed "tileworks" model of a horse & rider was made during the 17th / 18th century, most likely a product of one of the tile-works kilns in Shanxi, north China. This type of ridge tile is described in the British Museum book "Ming Ceramics", where similar examples are illustrated, as "a celestial warrior riding a flying horse". It is coated in green, black and yellow glazes.
This example is in fine condition with no sign of restoration or repair. Height 32 cm (12.5 inches).
