Pottery: Unknown (Probably)
Bowl with chrysanthemums. Stoneware, thrown, inlaid in white slip, and punch'ong-glazed. The mouth of this shallow bowl is slightly inturned; the centre is recessed and the footring is thick. The decoration of the interior is arranged in three zones divided by parallel lines; the main zone is densely covered with chrysanthemum florets stamped in three or four rows between a band of stylised lotus petals and another of zigzag diaper. All the designs are filled in with white slip, the glaze is of opaque greyish-blue tone, and crackled. There are traces of four clay supports on the footring.

Probably made in Cholla province.
This bowl was probably made in the first half of the fifteenth century at a kiln in the Honam area (Cholla province). The shape of the chrysanthemum florets with their long petals points to a kiln in Cholla province; contemporary pieces from Kyongsang province show chrysanthemum florets with a larger centre and shorter petals (see Sekai Toji Zenshu, vol.19, 1980, pls.111-114 for similarly decorated vessels; p.228, fig.104 for sherds from Kyongsang province; and pl.250 for fragments from Cholla province).
