16th Century Chinese Green Terracotta Lotus Motif Pillow

About

Being offered is a scarce 16th century figural Chinese pillow, green painted example molded into the shape of a reclining subject on a pillow, the headrest in the form of a lotus motif, floral motifs underneath the subject. Due to their scarcity, Chinese pillows have long been overlooked. Through extensive research, scholars now conclude that said pillows were a status symbol and often remained with the owners even in the afterlife. Dimensions: 8 1/2" x 4" x 3". In excellent condition. (Stan is deaccessioning his collection of pillows. This is the finest example.)
