Trần Dynasty Ivory Glazed Bowl with Bamboo Leaves Design in Underglaze Iron


An ivory glazed bowl fired during the Trần dynasty in Đại Việt (now northern Vietnam). It forms a thin body using high-quality white clay and draws bamboo patterns with accomplished style on the exterior wall and a well. It is inferred that this type of bowl was used as aristocrats everyday vessel, and it is occasionally found the exact design of different sizes in a set of stacking. The orange-cloured stains in the crackle glaze harmonise with the ivory glaze.

The entire skin is graceful as an excavated item and has almost no rough surface. Some minor glaze flaking and seal peeling marks on the base, but the condition is generally good. Also, it might be a possibility that the minor hairlines are lost into crackle glazes.
