Fine 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 creamy-white pottery. The figure is coated in very finely-crackled straw-coloured glaze. The glaze is quite thin, especially to the back of the figure. The figure stands alert with hands held together beneath a flowing robe. Note the fine details of the facial features and the clothing. There are traces of the original "cold painted" black pigment to the head and feet. To the base is stuck an old collection label.
Height 18.5 cm (7.25 inches). This figure is in fine condition with no restoration or repair.
