Why this is a
Masterpiece

The grapevines are realistically rendered through the skillful use of shading techniques. The handsome shape of the jar, the transparent quality of the glaze and the bold composition of the grapevines, reminiscent of literati paintings, make this jar the finest known example of Joseon white porcelain.

History of the Object
This ceremonial jar was used at the royal palace.
