Object Description

A beautifully glazed ceramic tea-set dates to the Tang Dynasty, featuring an evenly glazed shallow dish with its straight wall raising from a ring base. A central bowl, covered with an attractive turquoise glaze and featuring an everted rim and globular body, is placed in the centre, and encircled by six tea cups. Reflecting the typical Tang Yue-ware features, this beautifully glazed tea-set has a strong aesthetic appeal through its well-balanced, elegant shape and the perfect rendering of the white glaze which presents a nuanced colour variation between the yellowish-beige tone and the celadon glaze.

Date: AD 618-906
Period: Tang Dynasty
