Khmer 11th - 12th Century Glazed Stoneware Bottle
This very rare pear-shaped bottle was made during the 11th -12th Century. It is quite "heavily-potted" and is coated in a dark brown glaze, the colour of which varies according to its thickness, being at its thickest around the mouth and upper neck, and at its thinnest toward the lower body. The glaze falls short of the flat base to reveal the pale grey stoneware body. There is some surface wear and an obvious kiln scar to the lower body, but there is no sign of restoration or repair. Height 15.25 cm (6 inches).
This bottle, together with some other South-East Asian & Chinese ceramics we are offering for sale, has come from a local collection, established over the last twenty years or so.
