The Brooklyn Museum has an interesting post about the history of Korean Porcelain:
“Korean ceramic artists developed cobalt-decorated porcelains in the fifteenth century after admiring Chinese examples for years.”
The admiration is understandable. And these items at our galleries makes it clear why Chinese cobalt porcelain items were so coveted:
