A beautifully formed bowl in the typical Gohon style, produced in Korea for the Japanese market during the 17th century. The light-grey ash glaze makes a tasteful backdrop for the pinkish speckles decorating the surface. These patterns are formed through a reaction of the iron in the clay and the ash glaze and are very typical of this type of pottery. One edge of the bowl is furnished with a dimple, making it comfortable in the hand while the gold repairs give it an added beauty and depth.

In fine antique condition, this piece is 4.9 inches in diameter (12.5 cm) and stands 3.5 inches tall (9 cm). It comes in an antique fitted wood box with the characters 御本 (gohon) and 茶碗 (chawan) and is wrapped in its own light silver protective silk cloth.
