A very interesting and beautiful set of 6 figures, dating to the Early-Middle Ming Dynasty (1368-1644 AD).
The set consists of 6 figures all decorated in blue and torquise glaze. Each figure is holding different tools for garden work, incl. one figure holding a Plough over his shoulder!
A similar figure from this group was TL tested, being ca. 500-550 years old, so that dates the set around the 15th-16th. century.
Size: ca. 23 cm. each.
Condition: Superb, very finely preserved glazes and pigments on all figures.
