Korean Old Pottery Li Dynasty White Porcelain Vase Antique Vase

US$3,000Asking Price


We Japanese introduce unique items with unique aesthetics, purchasing routes, and ways that no one can imitate. This is old Korean porcelain. South Korea used to be the kingdom of Joseon (14th-19th centuries). During the Joseon Dynasty, trade with Japan continued for a long time, and many Korean Peninsula goods were imported into Japan. This white porcelain jar is one of them. White porcelain items were considered noble during the Joseon Dynasty and were only allowed to be owned by the wealthy, upper class, or royal family. It was named "cyouchin-tsubo" in Japan because it had a shape similar to Japanese lanterns. This is that cyouchin-tsubo. It is a very popular form in Japan. Beautiful design, quiet atmosphere, but elegant. In addition, I will explain the detailed periodization. Also, it is not in the medium term. In the mid-term shape, the center of the jar is more bulging. It is similar to the shape of the late Joseon Dynasty, but slightly different. I think it's probably from the early days (15th century). I think it is the stage where this shape is completed. There is a thin crack in the mouth. In addition, there are traces of use such as scratches. This is common with old porcelain. There are no other scratches. There is no water leakage. Comes with a wooden stand. I think it was made by Japanese people from the Meiji era to the Showa era. It will be difficult to get the same with 1st dibs. This is a very rare and recommended item. Measure: Height including the stand 29.2cm.
