Good condition.

Culture: Ancient Chinese
Material: Terracotta
Object: Female Figure
Century/ Timeframe: Tang Dynasty
Origin: China
Condition: Good Condition, See Photo

Provenance: From the old collection of Mr. Bernard Francis Walker, who was an art collector. Mr. Walker invented a type of archival paper and how to electroplate plastic. He was born in 1918 and passed away in 2012. He made numerous donations to the Detroit Art community back in the 1960's.

This lot comes from the private collection of Mr. J. Bahamonde who over a period of 20 years acquired his collection from various prestigious dealers and has now decided to downsize his beloved collection. His degree in archaeology from one of the best British universities and passion for Chinese art is reflected in this intriguing sculpture.


China - Tang Dynasty. 618-906 AD. A wonderful terracotta imperial court female figure showcasing a high hairdo and flowing robes. With an old custom-made wooden stand and collector's collection number.


Height: 23 cm. (excluding stand)


Condition: In very good overall condition with iridescence on the glaze and fine craquelure as expected from ancient Tang figures, some glaze losses as seen.

This antiquity will be send express, trackable and insured.
