Fine Chinese Tang Dynasty Glazed Pottery Figure
This pottery figure was made during the Tang Dynasty (AD 618 - 906). It is "heavily-potted" and made from a relatively highly-fired creamy-white pottery. Glazed Tang figures are so much rarer and more desirable than painted figures; the body of this figure is coated in very finely-crackled dark yellow glaze. The head remains unglazed and there are traces of the original "cold painted" red and black pigments. The figure stands upright with hands held together across its chest. Not the detail of the folds in the clothing.
Height 22.5 cm (8.75 inches). Although there are a couple of chips or firing faults to the chest and base edge, this figure is in fine condition, the glaze being exceptional, with no restoration or repair.
