¥31,000 (tax included)

Unglazed pottery jar with an unique shape. It could be a type of pottery called “Onggi”, unglazed or dark brown glazed pottery in Korea.

In the Korean Peninsula, powdered porcelain ware and white porcelain were mainly used as serving equipments, and pottery jar and pot were used as storage container and cooking utensils. These are clearly divided by the craftsmen, and are said to be in different genealogy.

This jar is probably before the Joseon Dynasty. The four holes in the circular projecting part tells that it was hung from above and fired directly. It was heated and cooled many times, so that it seems finished in such a black surface.

Most regions in Asia have its own native unglazed earthenware, but it may not be found easily if there was any other regions that made so precise and sturdy ware at that time.

There is no notable damage except a slight chip.
