[TREASURE] Joseon-era porcelain bowl with elegant lotus and scroll design


Name: White Porcelain Bowl with Inlaid Lotus and Scroll Design

Period: Joseon

Location: Yongsan District, central Seoul

Status: National Treasure No. 175

This early Joseon bowl was inspired by Goryeo white porcelain.

It has a height of 7.6 centimeters (3 inches), mouth diameter of 17.5 centimeters and base diameter of 6.2 centimeters.

It has a flared mouth and simple vine pattern with two thick lines at the top and bottom, as well as a lotus flower inlay on the body.
