Rare Thai / South East Asian 16th / 17th Century Celadon Bowl
This bowl is "heavily-potted" and is coated in a pale celadon glaze with traces of "golden-brown" here and there. The recessed flat base remains unglazed revealing the body that has fired to a reddish-brown. To the base are the marks of the "pontil" on which this bowl was placed in the kiln during firing. It appears the bowl sagged slightly during firing around the pontil as the centre of the bowl is raised a little. The outer wall has been decorated with bands of incised wavy lines.
The characteristics of this bowl differ from most known Thai celadons, the majority of which were produced at the Sawankhalok kilns during the 13th - 15th centuries, and we have not been able to identify the kiln at which it was produced. This bowl, together with two others clearly from the same kiln that we are offering for sale separately, was excavated from Cambodia.
Diameter 13.75 cm. This bowl is in fine condition, has no restoration or repair and has a good clear ring when tapped.
