Antique medieval splash-glazed stoneware ewer with phosphatic splashes, Tang Dynasty (618-907 AD), China.

The ewer of rounded ovoid form is set on the shoulder with two loop handles, a curved handle, a short cylindrical spout, and a flaring mouth rim.

The ewer is covered with a white crackled glaze decorated with irregular splashes of mottled shades of purple, brown, and blue.

The glaze finishes unevenly above the splayed foot, exposing the brown ware; the base of the ewer is unglazed.

 

CONDITION: The ewer is in good condition, considering its age of more than 1100 years old. Shows the age and use; with earth and mineral deposits, the spout rim is slightly chipped.

No cracks, restorations, or repairs.
