Physical Description:

Produced in an official court kiln of Joseon, this white porcelain bowl is relatively large in size. The presence of ashes and sand on its inner base indicates that it is a midium-grade object which was not fired inside a sagger. Fine sand of the kind found on high-grade white porcelain is stuck to its foot, but its rim is wider than those of highgrade objects. The state of its foot, its color, and form are similar to those of medium-grade white porcelain bowls produced at the Kiln no. 5 at Beoncheon-ri, Gwangju-si, Gyeonggi-do.
