Joseon Dynasty Gimhae Katade Type Teabowl, Named “Jikkyu”


A bowl fired around Gimhae in South Gyeongsang in the early Joseon dynasty. A fine craquelure covers the glossy transparent glaze, leaving spur marks on the front face and the bottom of the foot. The white and soft glaze seems to be mistaken for a Kohiki (white slip), and the box is labelled “Kohiki Chawan”. An excavated inherited piece named “Jikkyu”.

There is a single chip and a hairline on the rim, and some minor hairlines in the crazing. But it is in a good condition overall other than minor scratches and unglazed spots by kiln alteration. It fits in an old box.
