Why this is a
Masterpiece

Well known for its magnificent shape and design, it is a good example of the 16th century white porcelain in underglaze iron-brown. By describing plum trees whose stump rises up in a circular way and whose small branches rise up straight, the artist created a poetic and noble mood. Since its design is done with a refined and elegant technique, it must have been done by a court painter. Also in this jar, the technique of the Four Gracious Plants in the 16th century is witnessed.

History of the Object
Iron-painted porcelain ware began to be made in the late 15th century and was broadly used throughout the Joseon Dynasty. It became a widespread substitute for expensive cobalt-painted ware in the 17th century.
