Rare Thai 14th - 15th Century Underglazed Stoneware Bottle
This rare and attractive stoneware bottle was made during the 14th - 15th centuries at one of the Sawankhalok kilns. It has a pear-shaped body and a pronounced flared cup-shaped upper neck. The body is coated in a white slip and is decorated in underglaze iron with a fine scrolling floral pattern within bands of varying width. The glaze is finely-crackled, transparent and of a delicate greenish-blue colour. The base remains unglazed and has fired to a reddish-brown. To the base can be seen the marks of the pontil on which it stood in the kiln during firing. There are a couple of chips to the base edge, clearly caused prior to firing.
Height 21.5 cm (8.5 inches). Unfortunately there is a sizeable chip to the mouth edge, although this rare bottle is free from any restoration or repair.
