Joseon Dynasty Gimhae Ware Two Handled Cup


A cup with two ears fired in the middle of the Joseon Dynasty. It was a ritual vessel which has handles shaped like ears, and had been made since the end of the Goryeo Dynasty. It was originally used with a small plate and filled with rice wine, and was offered to the alter.

This shape of the cups are mostly found with official kiln made white porcelain and Katade-type, but this piece is thought to be made around Gimhae which has a characteristic of a shiny crackled transparent glaze covered the entire vessel.

The glaze is glossy and transparent, and the ears are in good condition. The chips on the base are either from kiln damage or from an older age.
