Joseon Dynasty White Porcelain Jarlet


A white porcelain jarlet fired during the Joseon dynasty. This type of jarlet with bulging shoulders can also be seen in the early works of official kilns, but this piece was produced in a folk kiln in the 17th century. At that time, society was under pressure due to Japan’s invasion of Korea and the Qing invasion of Joseon. As a result, iron oxide became common as a substitute for cobalt, which had become difficult to obtain. Although it is only a very modest diagonal line, an underglaze iron decoration is also used in this piece. The tasteful crazing occurs on the lustrous surface.

It is in excellent condition with good lustre and no noticeable defects.
