Description: A rare and incredibly elegant large Chinese painted pottery horse, wearing a “cut fur” blanket This “cut-fur” blanket is usually reserved for large glazed horses, or those with removable saddles. In a pose of stately strength, the beautifully arched neck, open mouth and crisp detail, combined with the high quality white clay, set this horse apart.
