Korean Choson 15th/16th Century Punchong Slip-Inlaid Bowl
This bowl was made during the 15th – 16th Century (Choson / Joseon Dynasty). The inner surface is decorated with parallel lines (in fact, two single lines incised as a spiral) inlaid with white slip. In between the two spirals is a band of similarly inlaid flower heads. The glaze varies in thickness and in places there are small areas not covered by the glaze where the exposed body has fired to a deep reddish-brown. In the centre of the bowl are three "spur" or firing marks within the glaze.
This is quite a large bowl with a diameter of 19.5 cm (7.75 inches). Overall the bowl is in good condition although there is a small filled chip to the underside of the rim, almost invisible when the bowl is viewed from above.
