Physical Description
Many dishes of this kind were produced in Jeollanam-do. The inner and outer surfaces of this dish have been coated in a thick layer of white slip. On the reverse side, slip has only been painted on the upper part, leaving exposed clay body towards the bottom. Seven spur marks remain on both the inner bottom and on the foot. Much slip has peeled off from the outer surface, which also features a large number of pinholes.
