Fantastic tomb pottery Chinese Warrior of the largest size known!

We have 4 of these beauties in stock with full TL tests from the Ralf Kotalla lab dating this one to ca. 1420, during the Ming Dynasty, (1368-1644 AD).

This type & size is very rare and were made as tomb figures for wealthy and prominent people during the Ming Dynaasty.

The warrior stand proud with a strong facial expression with huge brows clad in full body-armor over a detailed heavy mailshirt. He is holding a typical Chinese sword in his right hand. Exceptionally detailed and almost sculptural quality! The figure fully glaced in the Sancai colours of orange-brown and green. Red and black pigments was used for other details.

The figure is made in three parts - 1. the podium and legs, 2. the torso and arms and 3. the head. This is the only type where the body and legs are made seperately.

Size: ca. 82-83 cm. in height, massive and heavy. The head is about the size of the head of a small child.

Such large size figures are extremely rare and were not for the common officials, they would have been made for the super rich, likely nobility to judge.

Condition: Superb for type and age, very small surface chip reattached at the bottom, wear consistant with the age. Beautiful 'grazing' of the glazed areas.
