Korean Choson 15th /16th Century Slip Covered Celadon Bowl
This stoneware bowl with a flared rim was made during the 15th – 16th Century (Choson / Joseon Dynasty) or possibly earlier. It has been coated in a white slip on top of which is a finely-crackled pale greyish-green glaze. The glaze has run in places and on the underside falls a long way short of the small foot. There is an incised circle to the inner centre as well as five spur marks in the glaze. The impressions of spur marks can also be seen around the base on the underside that penetrate through the slip revealing the pale grey body.
This is quite a large bowl with a diameter of 18 cm (7 inches). There are some short old stained hairlines at the rim that follow the crackle of the glaze and two chips to the underside of the rim. There is no repair or restoration.
