Chinese Tang Dynasty Glazed Stoneware Tray & Wine Cup Set

This high-fired sturdy dish with eight accompanying cups was made during the Tang Dynasty (AD 618 - 906). The finely-crackled and thin pale straw-coloured glaze was used sparingly, covering only the inner and outer edges of the dish, as well as the inner and upper outer surfaces of the cups. The glaze is so thin that in places on both the dish and the cups it has degraded and flaked from the surface. The cups are not uniform in size and there are seven cups of approximately the same size, and one larger. On the surface of the dish are eight "shadows" showing where the cups were placed during firing.

Diameter of dish 25.75 cm (10+ inches). Good overall condition with no sign of restoration or repair.

For information: this jar is part of a modest yet very interesting private English collection of Chinese antiquities acquired during the 1990s that we recently acquired.
