Korean 19th Century / Choson Blue & White Porcelain Jar - Peonies
This fine quality porcelain jar of globular form was made during the 19th century during the Choson (Joseon) Dynasty. It is particularly "heavily-potted". The flat base is recessed a little into the body of the jar and there is a protruding ridge around the inner base of the neck. There are small amounts of kiln grit embedded within the glaze around the inner foot ring. It is coated both inside and out in a silky-smooth glaze that has a hint of blue. The underglaze blue decoration features an attractive peony scroll around the main body with a band of rui lappets surrounding the neck.
Diameter 15 cm, height 11.5 cm, weight 1 kg. About two-thirds of the neck has been broken out and neatly re-stuck. Overall though, a very nice presentable jar.
This jar comes in an old and rather tatty Japanese (?) wooden box with a sliding cover at its front.
