Every collector should have some of these Ming dynasty pottery burial figures in their collection. They are such a good bargain and they tell us so much about Chinese culture. Whereas the Tang dynasty figures are always rather theatrical, these Ming attendants are resolutely realistic. They remind me of the bored professional mourners one still sees occasionally at funerals today. This female servant is a very good example, with her robes covered in a slightly iridescent crackled green glaze and her cleaning utensil in her hand. Size: h: 21.cm, dia: 6.0 cm Condition: very good
