Group of miniature pottery figures

It is unusual to find such a group of miniature pottery figures. The characters represent an high official with his wife accompanied by a cortege of fifteen female and male attendants.The ladies are dressed in high-waisted long gowns with different types of hairstyles. Good remains of red and black pigments are still found on several of the figures.

Miniature pieces from the Lillian Schloss' collection were sold at Sotheby's in December 1987.
