This is an early and simple Vietnamese low bowl with a pale tannish celadon glaze with a crackle finish. The top and the bottom of the bowl are glazed, but the interior of the footed rim has some glaze drips but is primarily unglazed natural clay. The glaze tended to run unevenly in some areas, making for an unusual pattern. It has an interesting rim that is wider than one would expect and has a dip surrounding it. The bowl measures 7 7/8" diameter and is 1 3/8" deep. It is in excellent condition - at couple of small hairline flaws that took place whilst firing in the kiln. We date the piece to the 15th to 16th century.
