Physical Description
This type of bowl, with an inverted rim and hollow inside, is known as an okbari or omok-bansanggi (concave tableware). Considering its size, it was probably used for serving steamed rice. The tall foot was made separately before being attached. One line is incised around the outer rim of the bowl, which gently slopes inwards. The nipple-shaped handle is fixed to the top of the lid by a nail. The head of a nail joining the foot to the base of the bowl is visible on the indented base of the foot.
