Large Thai 14th - 15th Century Sawankhalok Celadon Bowl
This large stoneware bowl was made at the Sawankhalok kilns around the 14th - 15th century. It is heavily-potted and has a foliate rim. The inner surface is decorated with incised rings, a floral scroll and, in its centre, a lotus blossom. The outer wall is decorated with a series of vertically carved lines. The clear celadon glaze is crackled and has a faint blueish tint to it, especially to the underside. The crackle of the glaze has penetrated the body in a couple of places.
Diameter 30 cm. So many examples of this type of Thai celadon ware have extensive repairs, often to such a high standard that many people fail to notice: although this bowl does have a repaired chip at the rim, its overall condition is very good and this is a very good large example of its type.
