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 an olive-green glaze, the colour varying in places, especially where the glaze is at its thinnest. 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.
