<br />
This oil lamp is made from high-quality white clay with a highkaolin content. The glaze has been removed from its flat base, which was placed on a kiln shelf during firing. The lamp was designed so that oil is first poured into the body, after which a wick is drawn out through the small hole at the top of the lid to be lit. A handle was attached to one side of the body. Oil lamps of this kind were widely used in private homes in Korea since the Japanese colonial period until the 1950s.<br />
