I bought this massive 42 cm large figure on eBay. It was quite cheap, and had some small problems here and there. The head was poorly re-attached, and the feet had a bad repair.
I touched-up the repairs and started my research. I had never seen paint partially painted over the glaze. The glaze is i.m.o. a true Tang glaze, and all parts turned out to be original. The broken feet matched the body, and the head is original. Some glaze overran the break, to prove that.
The example from the book. There is the same overpainting of the glaze on the legs and neck.
