Chinese Song Dynasty Henan Glazed Stoneware Bowl (AD 960 - 1279)
This stoneware bowl was made during the Song Dynasty (AD 960 - 1279) at one of the workshops in Henan or Hebei province in the north of China. It is quite "heavily-potted" and coated in a thick glossy glaze, ranging from brown to black according to its thickness. The glaze covers the interior of the bowl but falls short of the base on the exterior revealing the pale creamy-coloured stoneware body.
It is quite a large bowl with a diameter of 18.75 cm (7.25 inches). Despite the obvious firing faults in places to the glaze caused during manufacture & firing, this bowl is in very good condition; there is some surface wear but there is no repair or restoration and it has a good ring when tapped.
