Korean Koryo Dynasty Celadon Bowl (13th / 14th Century)
This attractively-shaped bowl was made in the 13th - 14th century, during the Koryo Dynasty (AD 918 - 1392). It is glazed all over in a very-finely crackled pale celadon glaze. It has five decorative "V"-shaped notches spread equidistant around the rim and a single incised line just below the inner rim. To the centre inside and to the base are the marks of kiln spacers from when the bowl was fired.
Diameter 17.5 cm (7 inches). There is no restoration or repair although there is the tiniest of chips at the rim edge and nearby, although unrelated, an even more insignificant short hairline that can only really be seen with a magnifying glass that follows the crackle of the glaze (see images), more than likely caused during the cooling process after manufacture. Overall, a very nice bowl in very good condition.
