Perforated stoneware such as this stand are associated with the Silla Kingdom and Gaya Confederacy in southeast Korea. The region is peppered with excavation sites, where discoveries continue to be made to this day. This tall stand, which would have supported a smaller dish or jar for storing food or liquid, was probably used in a burial context.
