Choson Dynasty, late 19th century

approx. 14.3-11.8cm in diameter, 6.6cm in height (5.6-4.6in, 2.6in)

Mature Korean white porcelain bowl in the shape of Kutsu-chawan (lit. 'Shoe-shaped tea bowl' in the Japanese tea term) by accidental natural distortion of kiln-firing.
"Designed" with kintsugi gold restorations in the aesthetic whiteness to be reborn as a new creation. Lovely smooth feeling for hold of practical use.
Fine antique condition as is, with unfatal hairline cracks.
