This buncheong bowl with stamped design was maily supplied to government offices in the 15th century. It is decorated with a lotus flower on the inner base surrounded by lotus petals, butterflies and rows of dots on the inner wall. The outer wall, too, is filled with rows of dots. It was poorly sintered and the glaze applied to the lower part of the body is not melted in parts. The foot is not glazed and exposes the clay body.<br />
