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 />

This small jar features large peony sprays in the center of the body, and above them are decorated a yeoui-head band. This type of the small blue-and-white porcelain jars was popular among collectors thanks to the outstanding harmony of white and blue. This piece has coarse sand spur marks, and red spots are visible on the foot rim. The jar remains intact, and the glaze was well fused.<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 />

<p>This is a celadon lidded bowl with the top of the lid decorated with a peony spray design inside a hexafoil outline inlaid with black and white slips. The foot was made by removing clay from the underside of the base and retains traces of quartzite spurs in three places. The glaze was slightly darkened on the upper part with faint gloss. The glaze is poorly fused on the base of the body, leaving practically no sheen. The piece is of high value, however, for the glimpse it offers of Goryeo&rsquo;s refined yet splendid inlaid celadon ware, thanks to its decorative design that depicts a peony in full bloom, inlaid with white clay.<br />
