Joseon Dynasty Brown Glazed Faceted Jar


A faceted jar fired in the end of the Joseon dynasty. This type of jar is called 석간주단지 (Seogganju Jar) in Korea and was produced all over the Peninsula, including in the north. It was the representative commoner’s living container for seasonings, honey, and salt. Most of them have eight faces, according to Chinese I Ching, but the number of faces is not constant, and this piece consists of thirteen. The uneven and glossy brown glaze, the flow of glaze lines, and the vertically long-form with short-width facets are attractive.

There are minor chips, short hairlines on the rim, and a chip on the base.
