唐代(618-907)长沙壶

Literature:

Changsha stoneware takes its name from the Changsha kilns located south of the Yangtze River. Production reached its peak in the Tang Dynasty, when stoneware was produced primarily for export to West Asia. The palm leaf motif attests to the connection between East Asia and Arabian countries in the Tang Dynasty.

Of an ovoid form, the rounded shoulders rise to a short cylindrical neck with flared rims. A faceted short sprout and three handles are applied to the shoulder of the vessel. Three appliqué decorations featuring the leaves of the palm date tree are found immediately under two of the handles and the sprout, splashed with a dark brown iron-manganese glaze. The central appliqué is of a familiar motif of a ‘bowknot’ in the shape of a cross atop a central leaf. It is accompanied by a pair of birds arranged symmetrically face to face. A translucent greenish-greyglaze covers the surface, coming to an uneven halt about one inch from the bottom, exposing the white chalky unglazed body.

长沙石器得名于长江以南的长沙窑。唐代生产达到顶峰,当时的石器主要出口到西亚。棕榈叶图纹是代表唐代时期东亚与阿拉伯国家关系的一个重要标志。

卵形,壶身圆形肩部以上是有着喇叭形边缘的短圆柱形口径。一面侧边的短芽和三个把手被连接到壶体的肩膀。即发现在两个把手和短芽下是溅上深褐色的铁锰釉的三片棕榈枣树的叶子,。在中央叶片顶部的十字形贴花是一个较常见的“蝴蝶结”纹样。伴随着是一对对称排列的鸟。半透明的青灰色釉面覆盖整个表面,釉面不均匀的流淌到底部约一英寸的地方,露出了白垩色的胎面。
