In my humble opinion, great Mishima bowls are few and far between, but this particular one, dating from the first part of the Joseon dynasty (1392-1897), is truly exceptional.

It is a sublime example of the genre.

Mishima is the Japanese name for this kind of pottery decorated with a white slip, covered by a pale-bluish glaze...
