Description: A beautiful and finely done Fongxian Appaloosa It is extremely rare to have so much old pigment intact. The appaloosa pattern is also one of the least used decorations on Tang horses. The smaller size is typical of pottery from the Fongxian area, where, due to kiln size and market consideration, the finest of work is found on the smaller sculptures.
