A KOREAN HONEY STORAGE JAR, CHOSON, 19TH CENTURY.

A facetted stoneware jar covered overall with a dark chocolate glaze except for the mouth and the foot-rim. The octagonal shape is created by first throwing the vessel on a potter’s wheel and then, when the pot is ‘cheese hard’, boldly shaving the sides. The shoulder has been decorated with a light combed wave. It is apparent from the foot that the pot stood on sand during the firing.

A potter’s pot and heavy enough to support a single flowering branch for display.

Approximately 7 inches (18 cm) diameter, 6.5/8 inches (16.8 cm) high. Excellent condition. Please study the photographs.

I am based in the United Kingdom so charges made to credit cards are in GBP ( British Pounds ) and your credit card issuer automatically converts the charge to the currency of your country. Payment may also be made by direct bank transfer in GBP as long as all fees are paid by the sender. I am sorry but I cannot accept a cash transfer payment by Western Union as I don’t have an office nearby.
