Large Thai 14th - 15th Century Sawankhalok Celadon Bowl
This large stoneware bowl was made at the Sawankhalok kilns around the 14th - 15th century. The inner surface is decorated with incised rings and a geometric band. The outer wall is decorated with a series of vertically carved lines. The thickness of the clear celadon glaze does vary in places, being crackled where at its thickest. The green colour of the glaze, especially to the underside, has a blueish tint to it. The glaze has flaked a little around the rim edge where at its thinnest. The unglazed lower body to the underside has fired to a reddish-brown and in the centre of the base can be seen the mark from the pontil on which it stood in the kiln during firing.
Diameter 29 cm (11.5 cm). An exceptional example of its type, being free from any restoration or repair, also having a good sonorous ring when tapped.
