Seller: dagoodstuff (17,151) 100% Top-Rated Plus, Location: Phoenix, Oregon, Ships to: Worldwide, Item: 191952470329 AUTHENTIC OLD QING DYNASTY CLAY HEAD CHINESE EMPEROR or ROYAL FIGURE DESCRIPTION It's not often that such a substantial Museum Quality piece is offered to the public. This has been in our family for several decades. It most likely should have a price tag closer to somewhere around $2,500.00 to $5000.00 but we must begin to thin down our collection. We have not had a Thermolumeinescent test preformed on this piece to get the exact age. Once that's done this could be worth BIG BUCKS!! We are just getting too tired to do all these things. Its hard enough for us to just to list on ebay and pack the things that sell. This remarkable Clay Terra Cotta Warrior Emperor or Royal Figure's Head must have been removed in a hurry by whomever (hungry peasant farmers?) many, many years ago (possibly sometime in the 1920's ?) without thought to the destruction they may have been doing to the burial site or to the remaining figure. It appears they may have removed the head using a saw, since you can still see the old wooden stake or dowel that ran down from the head to the main body as shown in one of our images. This type of practice (raiding shrines and graves) was very common in the 1920's and 30's because the Chinese people were starving. We have never mounted this head for proper display, so we'll leave that up for the next owner. We're hoping that a museum buys this so it can be publicly displayed. This is typical of objects that would represent the needs of everyday life for the hereafter to be placed in a tomb along with the deceased. There are 3 areas of beard on the face that appears to be made of possibly horse hair as shown in one of our close-up images. What An Opportunity Someone Will Have To Own This Fantastic Piece of Antiquity! The Qing Dynasty started with the Western Han in the year 1644 A.D. and ended around 1908 A.D. This IS Not a Cheap Reproduction! SIZE This Incredible Clay Head itself weighs close to 40 pounds. It measures approx. 14" tall, is 9" wide and is approx. 8 1/2" deep. There is an image of the head next to a cola can and next to an adult male's hand to help give you a better idea of the size. CONDITION This Outstanding Tomb Figure is in excellent condition for its age with some expected degradation. This well cared-for piece shows signs of its true age. The condition of the piece is typical of most Tomb Sculpture of the Qing Dynasty Period. There are areas of damage, which can be seen in the images in the listing. Please be certain to view all of the images so that you can get the best understanding of the condition. Email us if you have any questions before placing a bid or making an offer. You just don't find museum quality pieces offered at this price! We have a large collection that we will continue to place on Ebay. Be sure to view our listings often. What A Remarkable Addition To Anyone's Collection! We've recently decided to sell some of the antique items that we've held onto for all this time. It's time to thin out the majority of our collection. We see sellers on Ebay and other internet sites offering similar articles for several times our asking price. Why would you pay such high prices when you can buy from us at a fraction of the price? SHIPPING This Exquisite Burial Figure will require careful packing. We will wrap the head in foam rubber and cushion this in Styrofoam. It will then be boxed for extra protection. Extreme care will be taken as we would not want to have this museum quality item damaged while in transit after being cared for so well for all of these years. Postage within the USA including Tracking is $99.95. Please email to inquire shipping charges to foreign countries. Please email us if you have any questions before placing your bid or making an offer.
