South-East Asian 13th Century Glazed Stoneware Jar (Khmer / Thai)
This small stoneware jar of globular form was made during the 12th - 13th century. It has a pale grey stoneware body and has been coated, both inside and out, in a thin dark brown glaze that has a slight hint of green. The base and lower outer body remain unglazed. The characteristics of the glaze (degraded surface, minor flaking from the surface and overall "feel" ) are very similar to Khmer glazed vessels of this period although it is indeed possible this jar is Thai (some Khmer ceramics have been excavated from what is present-day Thailand).
Diameter 7.5 cm. Although not immediately obvious, close examination and holding the jar at just the right angle in the light, reveals fine cracks to the upper and lower body, although the jar is perfectly stable.
