Don fouilles, Janse, Robert Ture Olov, Mission Janse Indochine (1934-1935)

Compared to the previous period, ceramics from the An Nam period are much less diverse in form. The tombs studied by Janse must have contained precious objects that had already been removed and dispersed before his arrival. Only the ceramics had been left. There was a much smaller range of items than specimens from the Giao Chỉ period, including jars, dishes, small bowls and stands for offerings.
This jar, placed against the outer wall of the brick tomb, may have contained an alcohol as an offering to the soul of the deceased. It has a thick body and a crackled-glaze lid characteristic of ceramics from the An Nam period. The base was unglazed and the belly above the foot bears traces of dripped glazing. The glaze here has a uniform olive tint, heralding the taste for celadons in the following period.
