RARE pottery "mingqi" featuring a saddled horse, from the early Jin dynasty (Western Jin dynasty).
This very distinctively-styled horse is typical of those made during the Jin Dynasty:
Mountain pony-type, freestanding, saddled, tail held out, mane with bulbous pointed top.
Grey pottery coated with (originally) white slip. Original, muddy, untouched.
The horse is 31cm high and 24,5cm long.
Wonderful condition, no visible damage. If any, could only be seen through X rays.
From a private Belgian estate, acquired in 2012.
This horse comes with a TL certificate from Ralf Kotalla, consistent with the Tang period, in 3 different points.
