|A very striking Khmer lime-pot or jarlet molded in the shape of an elephant with distinctly recognizable trunk, ears and tail. The piece was then glazed in a dark chocolate brown glaze down to the top of the raised foot – which was then left unglazed showing the grayish tan natural clay underneath. We date this early example of Southeast Asian pottery to the 12th-13th century, the Khmer Cambodia period of Angkor Wat to the Bayon period. The item piece measures 3" high and is 3 5/8" long by 2 7/8" wide. Excellent condition with no chips or cracks. There is a faint old museum or collectors mark on the unglazed foot.|
