Qing Dynasty Shiwan Ware Lamp Dish, Set of 2 | China, 19C


Small dishes set of two, baked in the Shiwan kiln in Guangdong province during the Qing dynasty. This kiln’s marked blue-streaked glaze, created while imitating the Jun ware, is applied on the surface. Because it has a small handle, it was probably made as a lamp dish. The blue-streaked glaze, which has high fire resistance, is beautiful in appearance and practical in use.

These pieces are also reminiscent of daily wares in Northeast China to the Hoeryong in the Northern part of the Korean Peninsula, where the glazed pottery was heat on an open fire. There are no notable defects other than a Kintsugi repair on each piece.
