LARGE POTTERY COURT LADY. A painted large pottery figure of a Court Lady. Modelled with body swayed slightly to the left and standing on a shaped base, the long shawl trucked into the bodice of her jacket draped across her shoulders and over her clasped hands, her cloud-toed shoes peeking out from under the hem of her long skirt, and her hair pulled up into an elaborate coiffure, with large wang character cutout in the base, traces of red, pink, black and white pigment, earth adhesions.
