Heartwarming Hagi Tea Bowl by the Last Korean Princess, Yi Bangja (1901 - 1989) with the original signed box. This bowl is a spectacular achievement in ceramic artistry and technique. The glaze is a pale biwa color that was highly prized by 16th-17th century Korean Hagi potters living in Japan. The foot features the shrunken glaze that was used in those days. Diameter: 5.5 inches, 14 cm. Height: 3 inches, 7.5 cm. Part of a special and stunning collection we have acquired of ceramics created by one of Korea's most revered artists and beloved humanitarians. You now have the rare opportunity to own a beautiful work of art and an important piece of Korean history created by the last member of the royal household to reside in Korea's royal palace. Princess Yi Bangja devoted her entire life to the education of mentally and physically handicapped people, and worked tirelessly to support them. She is the subject of television and stage dramas, operas, movies, and books, including her autobiography, "The World is One."
