Joseon Dynasty Bluish White Porcelain Cup with Ear Handles


A cup with two ears fired in the middle of the Joseon Dynasty. It is an example of coarse white porcelain from an earlier than Katade-type. It has a pale blue transparent glaze covering the entire surface except for the bottom of the foot. This type of ritual vessel with a lovely and unique design was used in early Confucian rituals. However, it became a declining trend with the establishment of the Saganwon (Office of Censors), which disappeared around the middle of the Joseon dynasty.

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