Why this is a
Masterpiece

The figurines are of high quality craftsmanship, with well-preserved and detailed painting. Cultural-historically they are of interest as they reflect the fashion of the early Tang dynasty royal and upper class ladies with slim build and costume inspired from Central Asia.

History of the Object
Before the objects were donated to the MFEA in 1973 they formed part of the collection of Johannes Hellner, the first president of the Swedish branch of the Oriental Ceramic Society in London. Apart from what could be stated based on studies of the objects themselves, their previous history is unknown.
