<p>This vessel was produced in a form typical of 13th century celadon bottles with the beautifully curved form and inlaid decorations on the entire surface. The body is divided into six segments, each of which is inlaid with chrysanthemum stems rst then stamped with owers using the inhwa (stamping) technique. Glaze was wiped away from the base and sand supports were used during ring. Glaze on the lower part of the bottle was poorly fused, yielding an opaque surface, however the overall quality of sintering is fine. The mouth has been repaired and restored. This piece is assumed to have been produced at a kiln at Yucheon-ri, Buan-gun, Jeollabuk-do.<br />

Round porcelain jar with iron pigment under colorless glaze. An abstract dragon spirals around and up the body of the piece, marked by quick brushstrokes indicating scales and unrestrained swirls indicating features such as its head and feet. A slight valley in the contour of the jar marks where two separately thrown pieces were joined together.<br />
The foot is rather small for the size of the body.<br />
<br />
This is a white porcelain jar decorated with iron-painted dragon, which wraps around the jar three times, displaying dynamic strokes of brush. The dragon&rsquo;s head is not rendered; its two eyes have been tersely painted instead. Jars with iron painted dragons, rendered in an abstract from, were produced in large quantities in the 17th century; many of them were produed in regional kilns. Despite slight damage to its rim, this jar is preserved as intact. The central part of its body clearly shows that this jar was created by joining separately produced upper and lower halves.<br />

On each side of the bowl, a long, narrow, band-shaped handle is attached vertically and symmetrically. The base of the bowl is flat, while the part where the base and body of the bowl meet is rounded. The bowl gradually flares upwards. Three broad raised bands surround three parts of the body. A wave design is rendered between each band. Faint traces of paddled patterns are visible on parts of the base.
