Joseon Dynasty Buncheong Ware Small Dish with Inlaid Cross Design


A Buncheong ware small plate that was fired in the early Joseon dynasty. The inlaid design on Buncheong gray-blue glaze is called Mishima in Japan and prized. This piece is a rare example that has a cross in the centere of the front. Since the same type of potsherds has been excavated from the Undae-ri kiln site, Goheung-gun, Jeollanam-do which is known as the production center of Kohiki (white slip), this piece is also considered to be from that area. The scarlet kiln alteration that spreads on the front and back is marvelous.

There are two minor chips on the edge of the rim, and glaze flaking can be seen near the center of the front. Other than that, there are no noticeable defects and the condition is good.
