Chinese Tang Dynasty Pottery Lady with Oxford TL Test
This pottery figure of a female courtier was made during the Tang Dynasty (AD 618 – 906). She wears long-sleeved robes; note also the hairstyle. It is quite “heavily-potted” made from a buff-coloured earthenware that has been “cold painted” in black and white pigments, some traces of which still remain on the surface.
Height 26.75 cm (10.5 inches). There is some surface wear and a chip to the base but there is no sign of restoration or repair.
This figure has been tested by Oxford Authentications, the ONLY testers of ancient pottery accepted by all major dealers, auction houses and museums worldwide, and the Thermoluminescence Analysis Report that will accompany this figure is shown; this confirms the date of manufacture as "between 900 and 1500 years ago".
