This exquisite vase is a one of a kind handmade Korean white porcelain (BaekJa) vase with leopard mandarin fish (Sogari) pattern (백자 쏘가리무늬 호).
The white porcelain is smooth and glossy, and the blue Sogari designs are in a graceful and elegant style. The Sogari are in different sizes and have intricate details on their scales, fins, and eyes. The vase is a perfect example of the beauty and sophistication of Korean ceramic art, and it showcases the skill and craftsmanship of the potter.
The vase also has a symbolic meaning, as the Sogari fish is also known as Gwol-eo in Korean, which means “entering the palace”. This is because the pronunciation of “Gwol-eo” is the same as the “Gwol” character in “Gung-gwol”, which means “palace”. Therefore, the vase signifies the wish for success and wealth.
This vase is a rare and beautiful piece of art that will add charm and elegance to any space.
