Rare Thai / South East Asian 16th / 17th Century "Golden" Celadon Bowl
This bowl is "heavily-potted" and is coated in a celadon glaze that has, due to unusual firing conditions in the kiln, turned mostly to a golden-brown. 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.
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. In many places on its surface are the traces of ancient plant/root growths accumulated during long burial.
Diameter 13.75 cm. This bowl has no restoration or repair, although there is a crack and associated chip to the wall; despite this, the bowl remains perfectly stable and still retains a partial ring when tapped.
