Exceptionally rare Burmese 15th/16th century bowl, with lead and tin glazed green underglazed floral pattern. The kiln for this type of ceramic is as of yet still undiscovered; almost this entire genre of ceramic was excavated from the Tak Om Koi Hilltop Burial site on the Thai side along the Burmese border. The process of making these green and white ceramics was quite difficult due to glaze composition and maintaining the correct temperatures so many pieces have indistinct and washed out patterns. There is one tiny 3mm chip on the rim noted in last enlargement and minor fritting at the bottom of the foot otherwise in excellent condition. This is the first Burmese green and white ceramic I have seen in the last 10 years and even back then authentic pieces were always scarce. Ceramics in Burma generally resembled and emulated kiln products from surrounding countries but this type was uniquely Burmese. D: 17.5cm/6.9in and H: 8.2cm/3.2in.
