Rare Terra-Cotta Military Watchtower


A very rare Chinese terra-cotta treasure. Probably commissioned as a funerary piece for a tomb. This three-piece watchtower is built over a pond as indicated by the fish, frogs and aquatic fowl in the round basin-like base. The corners of the balcony show soldiers with crossbows. Stunningly green glazed, it displays patches of iridescence around the support beams and roof tiles. An Oxford Certificate of age is included.
