Thai antique celadon ribbed oil jar. made during the Era of Sukhothai in the kilns at Si Satchanalai in the late 14th century or early 15th century. The stoneware body is seen where the glaze falls short of the base. It has two small lug handles which was to aid the tying down of a cover over the top. The deep down turned rim also helps the covering.

The celadon glaze is very similar to the celadon used by the Chinese and is thick and covers the ribbed body down the sides. the jar was held by the base then dipped in the glaze and then held there for a while then turned over which is why you see drips down the unglazed body.

The ribbed jars are an uncommon shape and were used as various oil jars normally coconut oil. There are other examples of ribbed jars in the James and Elaine Connell Collection
