<p>Displaying a good sense of overall balance, the bowl&rsquo;s glaze is also quite clear and green. It was fired after the entire foot was glazed and placed on three quartzite supports. There are marks of glaze running on both the inside and outside of the bowl, leaving an uneven surface. Bowls fired on quartzite spurs such as this one were mostly high-quality items. Apart from damage in two parts of the mouth, this piece is preserved in near-perfect condition.<br />

<p>This is an intact hair oil bottle; an invaluable source for the information it provides about the form of Goryeo celadon oil bottles. The foot was made by removing the clay from the bottom of the base, while the foot rim shows the trase of glaze having been wiped away and has small grains of sand ahered to it. Glaze was oxidized in parts, yielding a yellow-brown color, and fine crackles are formed on the glazed furace. Glaze was poorly fused and there are glaze runnings on the lower part of the body.<br />

It consists of three parts : a cup stand with perforated base, a gentle curved wing and everted foot. The edges of the wing and the cup stand are decorated with fret designs.<br />
&nbsp;
<p>This is a round cup stand, a typical form of 12th century Goryeo celadon. The tray of the stand is incised with three chrysanthemum patterns, and encircling the rim is a fret pattern. The entirely glazed foot retains refractory spur marks. This is a defected product, the rim and foot of which have become warped during firing. The glaze is partially oxidized, giving the saucer a brown hue, but it was produced as a high-grade object.<br />

<p>This type of bowl was extensively produced throughout the 12th century. The outer wall is decorated with incised and raised deisgn of a two-tiered lotus petal. The glaze was oxidized, producing yellow-green color, but the application of glaze to the entire foot and the use of quartzite spurs indicate that this was produced as a high-quality item.<br />

<p>This bowl exemplifies early-tenth century celadon forms influenced by Chinese Yue ware. It has a halo-shaped foot (haemurigup), a characteristic of Yue ware. It is a high-quality celadon made from fine clay, coated by highly transparent glaze. Surface is plain while displaying crackles on its inner surface and parts of its outer surface. Many similar vessels were excavated from the Kilns no. 9 and no. 10 at Yongun-ri, Gangjin-gun, Jeollanam-do. Refractory spur marks created during firing remain in five places on the rim of the foot.<br />
