Chinese Ming Dynasty Painted Pottery Figure with Oxford TL Test
This pottery figure of a man holding a fan was made during the Ming Dynasty (AD 1368 – 1644). It is made from a reddish-brown pottery that has been “cold painted” in various colours, good traces of which still remain. He wears flowing robes and a ribbed hat. Overall condition is very good although there is some surface wear and signs that the fan has been re-stuck. Height 21 cm (8.25 inches).
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 300 and 500 years ago".
