Sui Dynasty Early White Porcelain Bowl


An early white porcelain bowl thought to have been fired near Xi’an, Shaanxi Province, or Guyuan, Ningxia Kai Autonomous Region. It had been called “Tang white porcelain” for a long time, but in light of the materials excavated from the year engraved graves, it can be seen that the era goes to the Sui dynasty.

The prototype of white porcelain began to be produced during the Northern and Southern dynasties period and made great develop during the Sui dynasty. This work is from the late Sui dynasty, which was the most elaborate in the making, and the glaze has become more transparent and the shape has changed to a thinner and more sophisticated. This extremely important example is set at the starting point of the white porcelain genealogy.

An excavated piece inherited as a matcha bowl. There are no noticeable defects other than the minor glaze flaking, small recolouring, and Gintsugi on the rim. It fits in an old box with a sticker written “Sui white glaze bowl”.
