Japanese Textiles and Folk Art

Joseon Dynasty Bottle Folk Art

AG626  $320.00

 

We found this lovely Korean bottle, assumed to be for serving liquor, in Kyushu, Japan in our latest trip. We were immediately attracted to the rustically beautiful appearance when we saw the piece. Irregular crackles cover the surface of the bottle to create an earthy texture while the natural ash glaze gently smooth and soften the overall impression. There is a small repair around the "mouth" of the bottle, which you can identify on the image in subtle brown color. Otherwise the bottle is in excellent condition. We believe that the bottle is from the mid to late 1800s.
