Regarding wares bearing the names of places or government offices, it appears that far more buncheong wares were destined for government usage than celadon or white porcelain. This buncheong dish contains the place name “Jinhae” (鎭海) on its inside bottom and the Chinese characters “Insubu” (仁壽府 – referring to a government office) on its outer surface. Apart from the scroll designs around the edge extending outside, the overall surface is decorated with stamped designs. Certain characteristics of this dish indicate that it was made when buncheong dishes with a stamped design were in their prime.
