Rare Vietnamese 14th Century Apple-Green Glazed Stoneware Bowl
This rare stoneware bowl was made during the 14th century. It is coated in an apple-green glaze. Although not very clear, round the lower inner surface there appears to be a floral (?) pattern using a glaze-resisting method. There is an unglazed stacking band around the centre, the centre appearing the be coated in a thin yellowish wash. There are six decorative notches spread equidistant around the rim edge.
Diameter 16 cm (6.25 inches). Condition is very good: there is surface wear to the glaze in places. There is no restoration or repair and the bowl has a particularly high-pitched ring when tapped.
For information: this is one of a group of five Vietnamese bowls we are offering that have come from a private English collection, reported to have been acquired whilst travelling in Vietnam during the mid 1980s.
