  • Description

    The two-character inscription inside this bowl reads “naeseom,” short for naeseom-si, the Joseon government bureau that supervised both the tributary products that arrived at the royal palace from the provinces and the liquor given to officials of second rank or higher. The same office also provided food and textiles for Japanese and Manchurian visitors.
