Joseon white porcelain vase in a rare bottle vase shape form. Eight faced body and a delicate pear shaped neck with a thick mid-band. Gently pitted throughout almost reminiscent of vanilla bean ice cream.

Condition: Overall good condition with noted pitting throughout, soiling to base no obvious signs of repairs or restorations.
