This Chinese glazed Kasai Pottery statue or ornament is made in the fashion of a lovely woman, although the dealer from Japan and I think she looks like a Japanese woman. It is between 20-30 years old made under the oversight of the Henan Museum. According to some kind folks who taught me about this lovely piece; it is made in the fashion of an excavation item from the Tang tomb in China. The glaze and style is called 'Kasai', it is both interesting and beautiful and with lovely bright orange and green colors glazed all over in nice glazes with her skin areas left unglazed, please see the close up we shared. She is shown sitting on a stool which can be seen from the rear picture view. The style of kimono dress and hair style is thus after Tang's popular fashions, it is also made using other handicraft and the method and technologies from the same Chinese time. The inscription on the bottom tells its origin but they were not able to give me a more detailed interpretation except that it was made under supervision of Henan Museum...... They also shared the most interesting information that Kyoto is built and modeled after Tang's capital 'Chang An'. in researching Tang appears to refer to a time and not a place- many articles of interest about this can be found on the internet. This lovely woman came to us from a collection in New york city. She is in great overall condition with no cracks, chips or repairs; please see the pictures for your condition report.
