Object history note
Found in Sarawak. Bought £15 18s. [C.231 to 236-1909]
A comparison with a crackled celadon bowl, with formal floral relief design on the outside, in the British Museum, which was found on the site of the potteries at Sawankhalok, seems to show that this bowl as well as No. C.236-1909 are of Siamese, not Chinese origin. The glaze and crackle are of similar character, and there is an exact correspondence in the finish of the base and foot-ring.
Shiwan ware. Bowl, stoneware with crackled celadon glaze, found in Sarawak, made in China, Song dynasty (960-1279)
