Antique Khmer Vase - Classic Baluster Form
A large ceramic vase with a compelling sculptural presence, and surprising age. This Khmer vase from Thailand likely dates from about the 14th century, during the time of the late Angkor Empire. We have included some photos in strong sunlight to show the texture.
This piece has the classic baluster shape with a wide mouth and a tall, ridged foot that is illustrated often the ancient temples of Cambodia and Thailand. The shoulders are incised, the characteristic dark brown glaze is only on part of the vase, indicating it was a later piece (14th c)
During the Angkor Empire many small kilns flourished in the area that is now Cambodia and Thailand. They produced a variety of vessels for everyday use, some with the classic form, some with a variety of surprisingly modern shapes. We acquired eleven pieces of ancient Khmer pottery when a Philadelphia institution was deaccessioning them - this is one. (They look fabulous in groups of three - mixing forms. Ask about the others we have.)
