Korean 19th Century / Choson Blue & White Porcelain Jar in Box
This porcelain jar of globular form was made during the 19th century toward the latter part of the Choson (Joseon) Dynasty. The underglaze blue decoration comprises floral patterns and two bands surrounding the neck. It is quite "heavily-potted" and there are couple of firing bubbles, no doubt due to the thickness of the clay. There is kiln grit embedded within the glaze to the base.
Diameter 13 cm, height 11 cm. There is minor surface wear to the glaze and a "kintsugi" (Japanese gold lacquer) repair to a chip at the rim edge. This jar comes in an old Japanese wooden box.
