A strictly museum quality, large pottery figure of a male attendant, dating to the earlier Ming Dynasty, 1400-1500 AD.
The figure stands on a large Lotus throne on top of high hexagonal plint in fine Sancai colours - a two-colour green and yellow glazed robe. In his hands he is carrying a large book or box.
He wears a high hat. Finely painted facial details. Lotus thrones are very rare for Ming pottery figures.
The head is attachable as often seen on the largest figures from this period.
Size: The figures measure c. 53-54 cm. A very impressive and massive conversation piece - the Lotus type is one of the largest known of this design.
Condition: Superb, finely preserved glaze and pigment, undamaged and no repairs.
