Joseon Dynasty Northern Korea Abacus Shaped Jar


An abacus shaped jar fired in the early Joseon dynasty. A bluish transparent glaze applied until the side of the base, on the body clay with bold potter’s wheel mark. Its tasteful glaze is similar to the white porcelain from Gimhae, but it is thought to be made in Northern Korea because of the exposed clay on the bottom, the crescent footring, and the curve of the shoulders. It has a distorted rounded shape that is different from the abacus shaped jar of Southern Korea.

There is one short hairline, a minor chip on the mouth, and the base. Other than that, there are no noticeable defects and no water leaks. It is perfect for winter tea. Come with a storage box.
