Chinese Sui / Tang Dynasty Straw-Glazed Pottery Figure
This pottery figure was made during the Sui Dynasty (AD 581 - 906), or possible the early part of the Tang Dynasty (AD 618 - 906). It is quite "heavily-potted" and made from a relatively highly-fired pale pink coloured pottery. The facial features and clothing suggest this figure is that of a foreign groom. The upper body and head is coated in a straw-coloured glaze, much of which has degraded and flaked from the surface. In places are traces of the original cold-painted black pigment.
Height 23.5 cm (9.25 inches). The head has been re-stuck at the neck and repairs to the base suggest the feet have been broken and re-stuck. However, still an unusual and interesting figure in good presentable condition.
