Joseon Dynasty Blue and White Porcelain Bowl


A white porcelain bowl fired at the end of the Joseon dynasty. The bulgy body and slightly pursed mouth are reminiscent of the iron bowl for the mendicant. Many pots of this type were produced in the Bunwon-ri (official kiln), but this one is probably fired around the Gimhae, inferering from the gentle crackled glaze tone. In the Joseon dynasty, There was the custom called Bongsong, the servant was given the food left over by Yangban (ruling class). It is considered that such a bowl shape was suitable for stirring the food.

A size that can also be used as a larger teabowl. There are stains into crackle glaze but there are no other notable defects.
