Ming Dynasty, ca. 1600s

This Tang-style camel is glazed overall in a transparent turquoise and stands on a rectangular base, the bottom of which is unglazed, showing the terracotta clay body. The right ear is mostly missing. The neck has a clean break about midway and has been restuck. There is a glaze flake on the left nostril, and an old glaze chip to the base beneath the left rear foot. There are remnants of burial clay, particularly in the hollow interior of the camel's body.

Height: 3 7/8 in., Length: 3 3/8 in., Width: 1 ½ in. over the saddle
