Korean Koryo Dynasty Inlaid Celadon Stoneware Bowl

This stoneware bowl dates to the Koryo Dynasty (AD 918 - 1392). It is glazed all over, save for the foot ring, in a celadon glaze that is very finely-crackled. The glaze has run in places and seems to have "degraded" resulting in some staining during its long burial. To the inner surface there is decoration provided by inlaid white slip, comprising several parallel lines as well as floral motifs. To the centre inner surface are four "spur ma...

The surface has been coated in a speckled olive-green glaze that stops short of the base, apart from a few runs that reach down to the base.

Rare Chinese Neolithic Pottery Tripod - Qijia Culture

This rare pottery tripod was made some 4,000 years ago. Although similar vessels were made by various Chinese Neolithic cultures, we believe this particular example to have been made by potters of the Qijia Culture (c. 2050 - 1700 BC). The form is of a cooking vessel and the three wide udder-shaped legs allow it to be stood in a fire with as much heat as possible being transmitted to the contents inside the vessel. Such tripods are made f...
