Korean Silla Kingdom (circa 6th century) unglazed reddish-gray stoneware funerary food vessel with domed cover on a high stem foot broadly flaring at the base and decorated with rectangular perforations. The lid is covered with incised designs and has a central finial. There are no cracks, chips, or repairs. The piece is in very good overall condition with minor imperfections consistent with its age. I cannot be certain if the lid was originally made for this specific bowl. Measures about 5 3/4"H by 6" diameter. This covered bowl is from a Sun City, Arizona estate. Most of the Asian items in the estate were purchased in Japan in 1959.
