Thai 14th - 15th Century Sawankhalok Stoneware Jar
This stoneware jar, or bottle of globular form was made during the 14th - 15th centuries at one of the Sawankhalok kilns. It is particularly heavily-potted. Around the shoulder and lower body are repeated bands of lightly incised lines. There are two small loop handles at the neck. It is coated in a finely-crackled greenish-grey glaze that falls short of the foot revealing the dark reddish brown stoneware body. To the base is the circular mark of the pontil on which this jar stood during firing.
This is a large example of its type: diameter 16 cm (6.25 inches), height 16.5 cm (6.5 inches). A well-used jar with some chipping around the mouth edge. There is some loss of glaze in places, most noticable around part of the neck and a larger patch to the body that appears to be partly due to its original manufacture. There is no sign of repair or restoration.
