Korean Olive-brown Rice Bale Form Wine Bottle Choson
The cylindrical body with a short circular spout rests on four raised feet. One end has the standard domed form while the opposite concave end, upon on which the vessel was fired, is unglazed and has the typical sand grit residue adhering. Dates from the 19th century. Approximately 10” long x 5 ˝” diameter. Very good overall condition. An example of this type of bottle can be found on page 63 (lot 92) of “The Robert Moore Collection of Fine and Important Korean Ceramics,” Christie’s New York auction catalogue for October 16, 1986.
