Joseon Dynasty White Porcelain Bowl | Korea, 17-18C


A smallish white porcelain bowl baked around the mid to late Joseon dynasty. Since there are no stacking marks on the inside of the bowl, it was probably made as a Makgeolli cup for the royal coat.

The slight bluish white porcelain glaze is reminiscent of a Bunwon-ri (official kilns produced superb quality of white porcelains for use at the royal court and to export to China.). However, another possibility is little older than it because of the technique that the inner base is oblique to inside and the sand attached on the base is relatively rough.

The bulging and curved shape of the vessel fits comfortably in the hand. There are no notable defects other than the kiln scratches on the base.
