Joseon Dynasty Kohiki Type White Slip Flat Teabowl


A Kohiki-type white slip flat teabowl was fired in the early Joseon Dynasty. It has a neat morning-glory shape and leaves four spur marks on the front face and the foot. It is covered with a transparent glaze, a bluish tint, and potter’s wheel marks on the back.

This piece was probably crafted in Unda-ri, Goheung-gun or the west part of Muan-gun, which were known sites of a representative production area of ​​this type. Kohiki was only made for about 50 years from the middle of the 15th century, and the number of pieces is incomparably less than the Mishima type (inlaid Buncheong) or Hakeme type (brush mark slip Buncheong).

There is a single Kintsugi repair, glaze flakings on the rim and two hairlines on the front face. Other than that, there are no noticeable defects, and the condition is good. It comes with a box.
