A beautiful bowl dating from the Goryeo (or Koryo) dynasty (918-1392).

It is a fine example of the beauty of classic vessels made in Korea during the Goryeo dynasty (918-1392). First modeled after Chinese Yueh ware, Korean celadons have come to be known as some of the best of the genre, with original designs and a high level of craftsmanship, attained around the 11th century, that made them very popular, especially with Japanese tea practitioners of the 16th century.

The simple vessel hides its noble air under the apparent hairlines and kiln flaws. Yet, at the same time, these attributes call out to the onlooker who on second sight will get lost into its light and soothing celadon robe. The subdued incised motif of a lotus flower can be seen from the foot, which offers a view of the bare clay; a welcome treat for the connoisseurs.

Please inquire if you have some questions.

The flaws and lines on the bowl can be seen on the pictures. It is however in overall good condition.
