Vessels with the inscription Naesom have generally been found at kiln sites in Cholla province. The two characters represent a shortened form of Naesom-si, the government office in charge of local tributes from the provinces and of hospitality towards official missions from Manchuria and Japan. This vessel was probably made for this office in the fifteenth century.
