A 17th century Chinese seated scribe statue handmade of terracotta during the late part of the Ming 1368–1644 or the early part of the Qing dynasty 1644–1911. This hollow statue displays a seated scribe holding a board on his knees, possibly for writing. Scribes, although not members of the Chinese nobility, were often well respected as they would write messages (on bamboo slices attached with silk threads) for the emperor and other wealthy patrons.
This red terracotta piece features a natural patina and traces of the original paint remain. The head comes off. This 17th century handmade Chinese red terracotta seated scribe statue will be a lovely decorative accent in any home and might make a perfect fit in an office where it would compliment a working atmosphere.
