Tang/Five Dynasties, stoneware jar with light olive green glaze and reddish clay body. The foot is rimless and concave.

I have done simple repair on the mouth by filling a shallow chip and applying a layer of gold leaf. H: 12cm/4.8in and D: 9cm/3.5in.

Originally I thought it might be a traditional wedding blanket that would be cut and sewn with three panels together but there is no border pattern woven into this piece as is typical. The pattern is quite unusual in that green is th...

Large pale green glazed plate with incised decoration, most likely from the Thantwe kiln near present day Rangoon, Burma.
