Jar and Tall Stand
Three Kingdoms period, Silla kingdom (57 B.C.–A.D. 668)
Stoneware with traces of incidental ash glaze
H. 21 1/2 in. (54.6 cm)
Purchase, Lila Acheson Wallace Gift, 1997
This combination of a bulbous jar and a tall stand with a perforated design is representative of high-fired, wheel-thrown gray stoneware from the Silla kingdom and Gaya federation. Silla vessels, particularly those featuring dramatic bases, seem to have functioned primarily as burial objects.
