Medicine Bottle
1600 – 1899
Gift of Marybelle B. Hanna
Produced at regional kiln in the 17th and 8th centuries Joseon, this white porcelain bottle is stable and balanced in form. It was made from iron-rich clay which tinged the bottle with gray-white, a common characteristic of 17th century white porcelain. The glaze on the upper part is transparent and shiny, but that on the lower part was not fully melted, producing a rough texture. The foot exposes the clay body as the glaze was wiped away from the bottom of the foot.<br />

These are <em>jubal</em>, a type of bowl used for serving steamed rice and often also called a <em>sabal</em>. The upper surfaces of the lids of these bowls are decorated with incised lines. Their bases are flat, without feet. The shapes of bowls follow regional characteristics. In northern provinces, rims curve inwards, and bowls are relatively short. In southern provinces, the walls stand almost straight, while bowls themselves are relatively tall.
