Trần Dynasty Ivory and Black Glazed Teabowl with the Floral Design in Relief


A teabowl crafted from the Lý dynasty to the Trần dynasty in Đại Việt (current northern Vietnam). Featuring a two-tone glaze with Tenmoku (dark brown to jet black) glaze on the exterior and a soft ivory glaze on the relief-designed interior, it exudes a dignified impression. The morning glory-shaped vessel and flat, low footring suggest Jingdezhen influence, yet the glaze combination and touch are uniquely Vietnamese—an exquisite teabowl showcasing artistic mastery and a rich contrast between the interior and exterior.

A similar piece is listed in the catalogue ‘Vietnamese Ceramics: A Separate Tradition (1997)’. Aside from minor glaze flakings around the lip, no other noticeable defects are present. It comes with a box.
