Physical Description
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 (daejeop ), five rice bowls (jubal ), seven kimchi bowls (bosigi ), six side-dish bowls (jaengcheop ), one sauce dish (jongji ), 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.
