Changsha Jarlet Tang Dynasty
This is a very lovely Chinese jarlet from the period of the Tang Dynasty.
This jarlet was made at circa AD 850-900 ; thus it is a very old one!
The kiln is from the Changsha kiln, one of the famous kilns during the Tang dynasty.
The glaze is a little bit erased or gone, but I believe this commensurates with the age.
Inside the jarlet, I can see green glazing too, very pretty!
This is the measurement of the jarlet.
The height of the jarlet is about 4 cm.
And the width of the jarlet is around 6.5 cm.
And this is the appearance of the bottom of the jarlet.
Do you know what is the function of this jarlet? Is it for drinking tea? Is it to put the ink? Is it just for water probably to grow plants?
I believe this jarlet is found near Musi river in Palembang, South Sumatera, Indonesia.
If you have any further information about this jarlet, please comments below. I’d like to know what is the function of the jarlet, who usually use this jarlet, is it produced in mass, and why is it ended up near musi river in Palembang.
