<p>Brass is an alloy of copper and tin. Brassware objects generally include ritual bowls, tableware for aristocrats, incense burners, braziers, and spoons. The UMMA collection does not include a complete set of dining or ritual implements but individual items including four water bowls (<em>daejeop</em>), five rice bowls (<em>jubal</em>), seven kimchi bowls (<em>bosigi</em> ), six side-dish bowls (<em>jaengcheop</em>), one sauce dish (<em>jongji</em>), and four spoons. It is assumed that these items were produced during the modern era. All of them were formerly part of the Bruce Hasenkamp collection.</p>
The bowl of this spoon is round while the handle has straight sides, and its end has a semicircular cross section. This is a typical spoon from the late Joseon period.

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.<br />
