Joseon Dynasty Hoeryong Ware Jar


A majestic straw-ash glazed jar fired in Hoeryong, North Hamgyong Province, in the latter half of the Joseon Dynasty. It has an abacus-like shape with a bulgy torso and a rich blueish streaked glaze applied inside and outside. It was inherited as a Mizusashi (freshwater container) and has an ideal glaze and fortitude taste of Hoeryong. Since soot marks can be seen on the side of the base, it was probably used for daily use originally.

There are kiln scratches and chips on the base and a thin hairline on the side of the base, but no water leakage. Comes with an old box with the words “Hoeryong Mizusashi”, accompanied by a drawstring bag and a coated lid.
