Sui Dynasty Early White Porcelain Bowl

This piece 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 bowl is an excavated piece that has been inherited as a matcha bowl. There are no noticeable defects other than the minor glaze flaking, small recolouring, and Gintsugi on the rim. It is stored in an old box with a “隋白釉茶碗-Sui white glazed bowl” sticker.owl”.
