Wine cup with ear handles


On view at The Met Fifth Avenue in Gallery 233

The cup here, used in Confucian ancestral rites, may have been placed atop a flat-rimmed porcelain dish, such as 2004.124. Both objects, produced at the court kilns (Bunwon), demonstrate the neo-Confucian elite’s taste for unadorned white porcelain during the Joseon period.
