Chōsen Hoeryong Ware Double Handled Jar


A double handles jar made during the late Joseon Dynasty or Korea under the Japanese rule period. These jars with handles are used for drawing water all over Korea, and there are various variations in vessel shape and design. This piece was produced in Hoeryong-gun or Myeongcheon-gun, North Hamgyong Province. And it is unusual for this type of jar to have sea cucumber glaze. It is a work that designed well for practical use as to see the dents on the side of the handle.

There are no notable defects other than glaze flakings on the rim and minor chips on the base. A label that seems to be a permit to take out from Korea is affixed on the bottom.
