Chinese-Tang or Ming Dynasty

Object: Sancai Porcelain of two Fighting Dogs
Culture: Ancient Chinese
Historical Period: Ancient Chinese, Tang dynasty
Material: Porcelain
Dimensions (in cm): 18 x 15 cm
Condition: Good Condition, See Photo
Origin: China

Very nice and rare Sancai statue of two fighting dogs. Antique Chinese statue.
Presumably Tang dynasty or Ming dynasty.

While Sancai figurines of servants and horses have a frequent occurrence, statues of fighting dogs are much rarer, especially in this quality. This masterpiece shows a very lively fight between two dogs and is finished in the famous Sancai colours. The natural erosion at the bottom of the pedestal of the sculpture gives the statue even more character.

Height approx. 18 cm.
Width: approx. 15 cm

Beautiful antique figurine, from an old Dutch collection (came from Indonesia to the Netherlands in the 1930s)

In the case of exports outside the EU: it may require additional export licenses. The buyer must take this into account, as well as the possible associated costs. This will perhaps slow down the shipping somewhat. Seller will notify buyer and keep him or her informed.
