A superb quality very large pottery figure of a male attendant or official, dating to the earlier Ming Dynasty, 1400-1500 AD.
The figure is placed on a high hexagonal plint and wears a fine two-colour blue and turquoise glazed robe. The unglazed areas have pigmented colors in red, black and white. Finely painted facial details.
The head is attachable as often seen on the largest figures from this period.
The figure holds a blanket under his arm.
Size: c. 48 cm. Very impressive and heavy conversation piece!
Condition: Superb, finely preserved glaze and pigment, undamaged and no repairs.
