Catalogue Note

During the 15th and 16th centuries, punch’ong wares were produced in the Kyerongsan mountains located in Chunchongnam-do. Punch’ong wares were identified by dark gray body from the high iron content of the clay in this region, and the boldly painted abstract designs, as shown shown on the present flask. The shape of this flask is traditionally referred to ‘rice-bale’, as it was commonly used to store rice wine or other liquids. Compare a similar flask in the Taum Collection, illustrated in Tuam Kim Yong-Du Sojap'un Torol, Seoul, 1993, pl.133
