Chōsen Hoeryong Ware Jar with Streaked Glaze


A jar with streaked Glaze, fired in Hoeryong, North Hamgyong Province, during Korea under Japanese rule. Jun ware-like purple spreads over a wide area, and the inscription “Hoeryong” is on the bottom.

Hoeryong’s pottery industry was initially flourishing and one of the major industries under Japanese rule. Such a long vessel shape did not produce much in the area during the Joseon dynasty when it was under the influence of the northern tribes of the Tumen River. Therefore it is presumed that it was created from the exchange with the Koshinetsu region of Japan, where it was the shipping route. A trace of Japanese colonial management is in the inscription on the base.

There are no noticeable defects other than the chips on the mouth. Come with a storage box.
