A Small White Glazed Ewer

Vietnam, 11th Century

Reference#: SEAC002

Height: 3 1/2 inches (8.9 cm.)

of compressed, globular form with a short, curved spout and a small, scroll-form handle, the flattened shoulders finely molded with a pointed petal band encircling the short, straight neck and flared mouth, supported on a short, circular foot. All but the footrim and base covered in a crackled, cream-tone glaze that pools to a pale celadon-tone in the crevices of the petals and as it falls towards the base of the vessel.
