Qing Dynasty Shiwan Ware Lamp Dishes


A lamp dish fired in the Shiwan ware kiln during the Qing dynasty. Its interior boasts a straw ash glaze adorned with exquisite glaze pools in the corners. The clay is exposed on the exterior, and a small handle is thoughtfully included. Shiwan ware, originating in Shiwan Town, Foshan City, Guangdong Province, represents a longstanding folk kiln tradition. It is celebrated for its diverse range of glazes, influenced partly by Jun ware.

Perhaps because of its heat resistance and vibrant glaze colour, this type of lamp dish is usually coated with a straw ash glaze. Notably, this dish exhibits minimal oil stains, and it is entirely free from any undesirable odours, rendering it ideal for use as a sake cup.

There are no noticeable defects other than kiln grits and slight stains.
