Korean Glazed Porcelain Dish- Choson Dynasty (15th / 16th Century)
This porcelain dish was made during the Choson (Joseon) Dynasty, during the 15th / 16th century. It is fairly "heavily-potted" and is coated in a pale blue glaze. Were this a Chinese bowl, the glaze would be described as qingbai. Inside the dish are four "spur marks" from kiln spacers. The sturdy foot is chipped, again obviously caused by kiln spacers. This dish is a little warped and, in addition to the various spur marks, there are a couple of minor kiln scars to the glaze and a tiny blister to the glaze at the very rim edge.
Diameter 14 cm (5.5 inches). It is in fine condition and has no restoration or repair.
When we purchased this dish both sides of it had areas of ancient "calcified" burial deposits. We usually leave such deposits in places, but we felt these were particularly disfiguring to this dish so we have had them removed. The last image shows this dish prior to cleaning.
