Included in this week's offerings are a handful of items we recently acquired from a gentleman who purchased most of his collection in the 1980's. This is one of those items, and is a rare opportunity to own a museum quality piece. This sale is for a very large and important Chinese painted pottery statue of a soldier dating to the Han Dynasty (206BC-220AD). The statue depicts a standing figure with his right arm raised and retaining much of the original paint. An almost identical example can be seen in the Pacific Asia Museum in Pasadena California. This large statue stands an impressive 18.25 inches (46.3cm) tall and displays wonderfully. Accompanying this statue is a Thermoluminescence Test that was conducted by Oxford Authentication and confirms the piece to date to the Han Dynasty. Overall condition of the statue is excellent for a piece of this style and age. There appears to be old professional restoration near the right leg of the figure which is consistent with the findings of the Oxford test. You would never notice the repair if it was not pointed out to you and almost every single piece of tomb art from this period has had some sort of restoration executed on it. This truly remarkable find, an authentic piece of hand made and painted pottery dated to the Han Dynasty, will be sold with !!! Good luck.
