This is a ritual dish assumed to have been produced at the private kiln near Bunwon-ri to supply the general pulic. The dish is deeper than the most other ritual vessels produced at the official court kilns, while the diameter of the mouth is small in relation to the maximum diameter of the foot. The clay and glaze are well fused. However, the the glazed surface has darkened due to the contamination by large amounts of ash. The base of the foot shows many traces of coarse sand supports. This type of ritual vessel with high foot is unique and simple in form that it was one of the Joseon ceramic vessels that was widely sought after by Western collectors.
