"Sancai Horse With Cream Dominant - Archeology"
China, Tang dynasty (AD 618-906) - TLT test of the piece: 1160 years old Superb horse with a powerful morphology. It is covered with a glaze "sancai" cream with brown drips. The saddle, the saddle pad and the terrace are without glaze. Sancai glazes are decorations of colored lead glazes. These are combinations of colors in which brown tints, amber and yellow are generally found, all three obtained with iron oxide, copper oxide green, and more rarely blue, from cobalt. Everything is placed directly on terracotta or porcelain biscuit. The cooking takes place at a temperature of 800 to 900 degrees. These sancai glazes appear during the Tang Dynasty, and will be repeated under the Qing Dynasty on porcelain biscuit. The Tang Dynasty is perhaps the pinnacle of Chinese civilization, especially in its first phase (618-755). A major legal reform and reorganization of the tax and chore system provides a solid foundation for the government, which is making an unprecedented effort towards the military. The emperors continue the expansionist policy initiated by the Sui, subjecting the oases of the Tarim Basin and allowing a revival of the caravan trade of the Silk Road. Pilgrim monks report Buddhist texts from India and contribute to the multiplication of religious currents. The capital Chang'an is then one of the largest cities in the world. The reign of Gaozong (649-683) and the personal government of Empress Wu Zetian (690-704) are probably the apogee of the dynasty. This coin is accompanied by a certificate of authenticity, a certificate obeying the OFC guidelines, the Swiss Federal Office of Culture as well as its TLT, thermoluminescence test of the University of Hong Kong, No. 109.94 , indicating the age of 1160 years.
