Korean Blue & White Porcelain Haeju Jar 19th C.

Lot 246: Korean Blue & White Porcelain Haeju Jar 19th C.

Estimated Price: Log in or create account to view price data

Description: A similar jar is published on page 86 of the Smithsonian catalogue, Symbols of Identity. Haeju jar with a painting of chrysanthemums on one side, whose many petals are a symbol of abundance, and on the other side of the jar there is a highly stylized painting of persimmons, whose many seeds are a symbol of many blessings such as the joy of many friends or many children. In 1883, when royal support for the Bunwon kins ended, the kilns in Haeju, North Korea took over in a big way. Though Haeju jars are quite affordable, even the most serious collectors and major museums have them in their collections, because they are admired for their beautiful and freely expressive brushwork. Haeju kilns did not have to follow the restrictive rules and iconography of the royal kilns, so the painting in underglaze cobalt blue is bold, free, and very creative. Recent Korean Art Society events at the Brooklyn Museum and the Burke Collection included the viewing of Haeju ceramics in both of these very prominent Korean collections. Dimensions: 10"H x 32-3/4" diameter
