Two Footed Vessels.
Ban Chiang.

Thailand, Udon Thani Province,
Middle - Late phase 1000-300 BCE
and 300 BCE-200CE


The smaller having an ovoid body with
flared mouth and conical foot
decorated with spiral designs in red
oxide over a buff slip. This jar is
closely related example on display in
the National Museum of Thailand
which has been accurately dated using
thermoluminescence to c781 BCE;
firmly placing it in the middle phase of
the development of the Ban Chiang
site. These vessels were constructed
using a “coil and slab” technique.
Areas such as the foot would be
constructed with a flat slab of clay cut
and formed into a cone where as the
globular body would be built up from
coils of clay.


The Second: Ovoid body with flared
mouth and conical foot painted with
geometric and curvilinear red oxide
over a buff slip. Unlike the other jar this
dates to the late period of the Ban
Chaing site which saw more densely
painted decoration covering the entire
body. Again constructed using a “coil
and slab” technique. the globular body
was built up from round rolls of clay
(unlike the earlier periods which were
more angular) then smoothed over
before firing.


Provenance: Oliver Hoare collection
(1945-2018).
