It has a long, thin neck and flat oval body. The wide foot is rather shallow but deeply recessed on the underside. The entire of surface is decorated with peony blossom design printed in cobalt blue sigment.<br />
<br />
This is a long-necked white porcelain bottle with peony sprays wrapping around the entire body. The white porcelain background is bright in colour, while the light and dark contrasts of the peony pattern give its flowers a three-dimensional appearance. There are sand spur marks on the foot, and on the outer base are incised symbols. Such marks are found in the waste deposits of kilns in Bunwonri, Gwangju-gun, Gyeonggi-do at the end of the 19th century. The mouth has been severed lost. This is a high-quality white porcelain bottle, with well sintered clay and glaze, but the rim has been severed and lost.<br />

This jar is assumed to have been produced near the Bunwon-ri kiln, Joseon&rsquo;s last official court kiln, after its privatization. Its shape and design follow the blue-and-white porcelain produced in Bunwon-ri kiln, although the jar was warped during firing. It features a foliage design around the neck, a yeoui-head design around its shoulder, and peony scrolls on the belly, all painted in cobalt blue. The jar has short neck and flared rim. The jar is glazed all the way down to the foot rim, on which remain sand spur marks. Its background color is dark, while the pigment has spread in some parts.<br />
