    Stamped punchong ware bowl

    From Korea
    Choson dynasty, 15th-16th century AD

    Punchong means 'powder green', referring to the greyish-green colour. The stamped decoration, filled with slip, derived from the inlaind decoration of early celadons of the Koryo dynasty (AD 918-1392)

    Punchong ware was very popular in Japan and humble rice bowls like this were treasured and often used in the Tea Ceremony.
