Joseon Dynasty Vase with Iron Glaze | Korea, 19C


A bottle fired at the end of the Joseon dynasty. It has an angular torso and a trumpet-shaped neck on a flat-bottomed base. It is a type of Onggi, not so-called Kuro-Korai (Korean Black vessel), because of its different type of vessel shape from Buncheong and white porcelain, and its unique brown glaze with high iron contained. While showing the influence on Kyushu’s folk art pottery such as Kurosatsuma in detail, the glossy and sharp form gives off a sophisticated impression that can not be thought of as everyday vessels.

There is a slight oily odour inside, and there are scratches on the mouth, but there are no noticeable defects, and the condition is generally good. Comes with storage box.
