Two Tang Dynasty Painted Figures Of Court Ladies 608-917 Ad:
Two similar antique Chinese painted pottery figures of standing Court Princesses, the first with both hands clasped beneath a shawl, the second holding a purse with a shawl draped from the shoulder across her back. Both with hair pulled up and back into a sumptuous crescent wing shaped coiffure reminiscent of an Arianne Grande contemporary fashion..... yet providing an accurate vivid picture of the elaborate dress and hair style worn at the Tang Court. Circa 9th to 10th century or earlier.
These are tall and elegant Tang Dynasty Court Ladies that display very well. Each measures approximately 16 inches in height including the custom carved stands that retain old collector labels still attached. Their impressive size and ghostlike appearance unite to create an immediate impression of instant and enduring visual appeal. I like and think you will too.
Please note the custom carved stands believed to be an especially rare and beautiful Chinese or Asian wood possibly subject to CITES import/export restrictions. Any previously existing historical CITES paperwork is not available for these stands and thus it will not be possible to obtain an export permit to ship these items to addresses outside the United States.
