Trần Dynasty Celadon Teabowl with Stripe and Petal Shaped Design


A celadon bowl fired from the end of the Lý dynasty to the beginning of the Trần dynasty in Đại Việt (now northern Vietnam). It rises rounded from a small base, slightly angled at the waist, and reaches a rounded petal-shaped rim.

In Vietnam, ceramic technology has improved dramatically by inviting 12 Chinese potters at the end of the Lý dynasty. This piece is also high quality and draws yet close to Longquan celadon. On the other hand, the iron-coated inside base was possibly imitated the clay colour of the Longquan celadon and the iron-coated narrow ring mark on the interior of the bowl, which placed next to the clay marks of layered firing, also seems a sense of decoration. The discrepancy that occurred in imitating Chinese ceramics deeply contributed to the uniqueness and fascination of Vietnamese ceramics at that time.

There is slight ageing on the surface, but it is still sufficiently lustrous. And there are minor chips on the base, but the condition is good. It was exhibited at Machida City Museum. Come with a storage box.
