Fine Chinese Unglazed Pottery Court Lady

Tang dynasty, AD 618-907


Finely modelled in the full round.  The classic corpulent Lady is elegantly dressed in a long robe with a pointed shoe protruding from beneath the hem, and with her hair arranged in a stylish coiffure.  Her face is  finely modelled with subtle features and with a characteristic ethereal expression.  Retaining vestiges of slip decoration. 

Height: 18 ½ inches (47 cm.) 

Ex: European Collection (acquired from the Gisele Croes, Belgium in the late 1990s).
