Goryeo Celadon Small Bowl with Circular Lines Design


A celadon cup fired at the end of the Goryeo dynasty. It rises from a small footring to a bulgy body, and the mouth is slightly inward. Three-ring lines are engraved to the outside of the mouth, and a rich celadon glaze drips on the wall.

In Korea, the tea ceremony introduced along with Buddhism from China peaked in the Goryeo dynasty, and many tea utensils were produced. Since this kind of cup is unsuitable for making matcha, it is presumed to be a teacup for enjoying leaf tea (sencha) or a ritual tool.

There is a chip on the feet, but there are no other defects.
