Large Thai 14th - 15th Century Sawankhalok Celadon Bowl
This large stoneware bowl, or dish, was made at the Sawankhalok kilns around the 14th - 15th century. It is heavily-potted and coated in a translucent and finely-crackled celadon glaze that has a hint of blue. On the outer surface, the glaze stops short of the foot where the unglazed base has fired to a deep reddish-brown. In the centre of the base is the round mark of the pontil on which this bowl stood whilst in the kiln during firing. Under the glaze, the inner surface is decorated with an incised scrolling geometric pattern within thin bands. The outer wall is more deeply carved with a repeating leaf pattern.
Diameter 28.5 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. This particular example, however, is in very good condition, with no restoration or repair and just a very small chip to the rim edge, as well as some minor surface wear that should of course, reasonably be expected.
