The white slip, stamp technique, and chrysanthemum motif of the tea bowl indicate that it was produced specifically for the Japanese market. It was likely made in the early seventeenth century; however, it is also possible that it was a product of the so-called Busan kilns (active 1639–1718) in southeastern Korea, which manufactured and exported revivalist Korean-style ceramics designed to cater to the tastes of Japanese consumers.
