Early Joseon Dynasty, Blue and White Porcelain Iron-Painted Grass Script Horse-Riding Cup (1392-1897 CE)


The "Puncheon celadon" is a type of porcelain that was primarily produced during the early half of the Joseon Dynasty, centered around the 15th century. It is made from a type of clay with a high iron content, similar to the clay used for traditional celadon pottery. The vessels are adorned with fine white slip decorations and coated with a transparent glaze before being fired, resulting in a gray or gray-black color.

The "馬上杯" (Mǎshàng bēi) is a utensil used for drinking during horseback riding, which was used from the Song Dynasty (960-1279) to the Yuan Dynasty (1271-1368) in China. Among the ceramics of the Joseon Dynasty (1392-1897), it is one of the historically valuable vessel shapes that tells the story of equestrian culture.

This item features rustic grass-patterned iron paintings on the side of the cup, presenting an appealing aesthetic. It is in good condition and highly recommended for collection.

Includes a wooden box.
