Joseon Dynasty Ritual Vessel with Pentagonal Faceting Design | Korea, 18-19C


A faceting design vessel from the Joseon dynasty. It is a kind of ritual vessel that has been largely made since the Middle Joseon period. Because it is thick and heavy, it inferred that it was used as an incense burner instead of a cup.

The appearance is different from the popular Joseon white porcelain, and the goblet-shaped vessel and grayish white porcelain are conspicuously unique. The pentagonal faceting design, which is often used in jars, and its smooth outline creates a soft impression.

The surface is graceful. There are some natural defects during the kiln process but they were repaired, and the three Kintsugi repairs on the rim.
