Chinese Song Dynasty Glazed Pottery Ewer (Guangdong)
This pottery ewer was made during the 10th - 12th century, most likely at one of the kilns in Guangdong province where a variety of wares were made for export to south-east Asia; indeed this ewer is reported to have been excavated from present-day Cambodia. It is quite "heavily-potted" and made from a pale creamy-brown brown pottery. The inner and outer surfaces have been coated in a thin olive-green glaze that has flaked from the surface in places. The rim and base remain unglazed. In addition to the short spout and handle, on opposing sides of the shoulder are two small loop handles, one of which appears to have been restored. Height 14.5 cm (5.75 inches).
