<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 />

Inlaying silver into ironware was a popular method of decorating metalwork that required high levels of skill. Numerous items were produced with inlay decorations. The entire lid and body of this hexagonal case are decorated with inlaid silver. The lid features a hexagonal design in its center surrounded by a continuous four-leaf flower design. The six sides of the body are decorated by three pairs of turtle designs, crane designs and deer designs, arranged alternately. The lid and body are bordered with a fret-patterned band. This case with a flat base is excellently preserved. This type of iron-lidded case with inlaid silver design was produced in large quantities from the nineteenth century to the early twentieth century, continuing through the Japanese annexation of the Korean Peninsula. Such cases are mostly octagonal; this is a rare hexagonal example.

Deep porcelain bowl with wide foot, fine body, and colorless glaze.<br />
<br />
This high-quality white porcelain bowl is presumed to have been produced at official court kilns around Usan-ri, Gwangju-si, Gyeonggido. The well-levigated clay of finest quality was used for this bowl. Sagger was used to protect the bowl during firing to attain its pure white, immaculate surface. Entire foot of the bowl was glazed, and the foot was placed upon a fine white sand support to make the surface as clean as possible. The outer base is enscribed with Chinese character &ldquo;天&quot; (&ldquo;Cheon;&rdquo; sky, heaven)&rdquo; by scraping off the glaze. The characters &ldquo;大&rdquo; (&ldquo;Dae;&rdquo; big; great)&rdquo; and &ldquo;黃&rdquo; (&ldquo;Hwang;&rdquo; yellow) have been stippled after firing. Finely fused and sintered, this bowl exemplifies the essence of white porcelain made from offical court kilns, which is robust and white as a white jade.<br />
