Korean Choson Dynasty 16th/17th Century Glazed Stoneware Bottle
This stoneware bottle was made during the 16th / 17th century, or possibly a little earlier. It has a cup-shaped mouth, a narrow neck, a bulbous body and a flat base. The surface has been coated in a pale thin slip on top of which is an olive-green glaze, its colour emphasized by the slip. The thickness of the glaze varies and on part of the body is particularly thin. The surface is a little uneven and in places there is kiln grit embedded within the glaze, all of which arguably adds to its charm.
Height 23 cm (9 inches). As can be seen there is a chip to the mouth edge. Also, although quite difficult to see and not at all obvious, a section of the mouth has been broken and re-stuck.
