Hoi An Vietnamese Blue and White Molded Parrot Bowl

the bowl shaped as a peach with a leaf painted on the exterior, the parrot curved along the side of the bowl, with its head slightly lifted up above the cup. The parrot is decorated with fine details. It is believed that this kind of bowl is possibly used as a condiment container or as a drinking cup.

Hoi An Hoard is Vietnamese ceramic wares made in 14th-15th century. The Hoi An ceramics were excavated from the wreck of a vessel lost in the South China Sea in the mid to late 1500’s, salvaged during the summers of 1998 – 1999. The ship sunk in 70 meters of water near the port of Hoi An. Since the ceramic wares were excavated around Hoi An area; the wares found in that place were given a name of Hoi An Hoard wares.

The ware is presumed to have its origin in Vietnam’s Red River Delta at the kilns of Hai Duong province. The Hoi An Hoard wares have a distinct and easily recognizable identity with the large-scale production of high-fired stoneware blue & white and monochrome white ware, and underglaze blue decorated wares represent the largest group, containing a number of rare and remarkable wares. These wares consisted of shipware & concretions, dishes, bowls, cups, vessels, kendies, bottles, jars, enameled dishes, barbed rim dishes, figural ceramics and covered boxes.

During the 14th-15th century, Vietnam replaced China as the predominant exporter of glazed ceramics to South East Asia. These salvaged pieces reflect the aesthetic sensibility and the culture of medieval Vietnam.
