Swatow ware or Swatow is a group of late Ming Dynasty exports ware from China to Japan, India and other Southeast Asian countries. Swatow is a name of a port on the South China (now Shantou) on the northern coast of the Guangdong region. So far the kilns where these have not been identified, but possible places of manufacture include Te-hua or Chuan-chou (Fukien) and Shihwan(Canton).
Swatow ware is generally coarse, crudely potted and often under fired. Decoration in blue and white is by far most common, although many polychrome wares, mainly with iron red and green over glaze decorations, are known.
this collection were collected in Jakarta betweeen 1968 and 1976. The collection is a good representation of trade wares in Southeast Asia and reflects the development of the ceramic industry and trade within the Asian regions during the thirteenth century and seventeenth century. This ceramic ware was probably exported to Indonesia via a sea trade route when Thailand became deeply involved in the long-distance ceramic trade.
