Chinese Tang Sancai Glazed Female Attendant Figure
Item Details
Description
**First Time At Auction**

East Asia, China, Tang Dynasty, ca. 618 to 906 CE. A lovely pottery female tomb attendant with a characteristically elongated body donning a traditional floor-length robe - her hands clasped together beneath the billowing sash. Adding to the statue's aesthetic beauty is the desired sancai glaze technique - gracing the surfaces with lustrous glazes of spring green, marigold, black, and creamy beige hues. Size: 2.7" W x 10.4" H (6.9 cm x 26.4 cm)

Provenance: ex-Nancy and Dr. E.F. Simpson collection, Los Angeles, California, USA, acquired from 1970 to 2000

All items legal to buy/sell under U.S. Statute covering cultural patrimony Code 2600, CHAPTER 14, and are guaranteed to be as described or your money back.

A Certificate of Authenticity will accompany all winning bids.
