Why this is a
Masterpiece

The clay paste has the texture of plaster, and the walls of the vessel are thin. The mouth is slightly everted and features a simplified scroll design around the inside edge. On the outside two fine lines run around the bowl at top and bottom, and an inlaid lotus scroll fills the section in between. Gentle and soft coloring and elegance featured in this bowl presents the unique beauty found in inlaid white porcelain from the early Joseon dynasty. It is designated as Korean National Treasure No. 175.

History of the Object
Made in the early Joseon Dynasty, the bowl has a soft, ivory colored glaze with fine crackling all over the surface in the Goryeo white porcelain tradition. While most inlaid white porcelain produced in early Joseon was roughly glazed and clumsily decorated, this bowl is finely finished with soft texture and delicate design.
