Joseon Dynasty White Slip Cup with Ear Handles


A cup with two ear handles fired in the early Joseon dynasty. It is a so-called “ear cup” with decorations on both sides.

In Korea, it was regarded as a crucial Confucian ritual implement, and various designs were made, but it disappeared in the middle of the Joseon dynasty. This piece features adorable two ears shaped like flowers and the soft taste skin of a white slip.

A wound at the ear has occurred during the kiln process, and the kiln grits are seen on the interior. There is aging on the lip, but no other noticeable defects, and the condition is good. Come with a box.
