Late Yi Dynasty (11th-12th century) Korean Punchong bowl of stoneware with a white slip glaze. There are 3 very tiny hairline cracks along the edge of about 1/2 or 3/4 of an inch. This bowl, with a very wide mouth, has 7 marks on the inside that are unglazed because there were small pellets of clay placed there so that another bowl could be stacked above allowing the kiln to be loaded with many pieces at one time. The outside of the bowl has a kind of orange skin dimpled effect all over. It is a rather interesting shape for a Korean bowl, not as common as other forms.
