A rare Annamese cream glazed ewer of ovoid form modelled with a zoomorphic spout and stylised scrolling handle, the elegant neck narrowing sharply and widening into a dish-shaped mouth, the cream glaze with overall crackling, the upper shoulder decorated with a band of double concentric lines containing abstract foliate motifs painted in underglaze iron-brown.

This is a sophisticated and refined example of an early Annamese ceramic ewer with characteristic abstract painting in underglaze iron brown. It is offset with well defined zoomorphic spout and curvaceous scrolling handle and is distinguished by the excellent condition of its glaze with no signs of degradation.

Reference: A similar Annamese cream glazed ewer with a greenish tint was formerly in the Piccus collection. It had a longer more prominent spout and foliate cover. The glaze was however water degraded with areas of flaking. See the collection catalogue "Important Annamese Ceramics from the Piccus Collection", London 1984: fig no. 7.
