<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 />
