Chinese Song / Yuan Dynasty Glazed Pottery Kendi (Quanzhou)
This rare and unusual kendi was made during the 12th - 14th century, most likely at one of the Quanzhou kilns in Fujian province where a variety of wares were made for export to south-east Asia; indeed this kendi is reported to have been excavated from present-day Cambodia. It is quite "heavily-potted" and made from a pinkish-pale brown pottery. The upper body has been coated in a pale wash on top of which is a mostly green glaze but with splashes of brown. The glazes are quite thin and have run toward the slightly concave unglazed base.
Height 18 cm (7 inches). The end of the spout has been broken and lost, the surface has some ware and there are chips to the rim edge.
