The bowl is ornamented with repeating stylized chrysanthemum flowers, alongside other designs. The object is typical of buncheong ware— characterized by white-slip decoration and produced on the peninsula from the late fourteenth through the mid-sixteenth century—with stamp-impressed designs.
Inscriptions indicate the court offices that commissioned the vessels. The bowl was intended for Naeseom-si, which supervised, among other things, tributary products for the royal palace from the provinces.
