A fine blue and white porcelain storage jar
Joseon Dynasty, 18th Century
The rim of its short neck finished with a recessed line, its swelling shoulder encircled by a yo'i-head band above swallows flying amid cloud scrolls while a stand of auspicious pulloch'o fungus and leaves to one side and a leafy tree on the opposite side rise up the body from the foot, all drawn in pale shades of cobalt beneath a celadon-tinged and craze-filled glaze also applied across its deeply recessed base (surface staining, body crack).
