This small print depicts an ornamental pattern composed of curled acanthus leaves and spiralling vines terminating in flowers or buds. The plant ornament forms a symmetrical pattern around a central motif inscribed with the initials "HSB," which are conjoined. This motif is framed by two horn-shaped containers that end in monsters' heads.

<br />
This white porcelain bottle is decorated with floral scrolls with black ink on the shoulder in two places. Its neck has been broken off and lost, while the remainer has been ground to smooth it. The bottle was modeled by traditional methods but was decorated with the imported pigment containing artificial chemicals. Blue-and-white porcelain using this kind of pigment was mostly produced during the Japanese colonial period (1910-1945).<br />

This bottle has a slightly out-turned astragal mouth. Short slender neck and a bulbous body that is rather heavy. The whole foot is rather high and thick. The body is decorated with a simple abstract floral design in cobalt-blue pigment.<br />
<br />
Small bottles with short necks were generally used as containers of perfumed oil or precious liquids. This is a small oil bottle decorated with semi-abstract foliage design in cobalt blue. The foot shows no trace of kiln spurs, while the foot rim is unglazed and reveals the clay body. The colour of the cobalt pigment and the way it has been fired suggest that this bottle was produced in the early 20th century.The lower part of the body was slightly contaminated, but the bottle remains intact.<br />

This is a grayish brown small jar with a short neck and a globular body. It is dated to the end of the 19th century, judging from its motifs, color of cobalt-blue and shape. It is decorated with a line around the rim and with floral scrolls on the shoulder. The entire foot is glazed and has grains of coarse sand stuck to it. Extensive contamination from impurities on its surface has given it a yellow tint overall.<br />

This bowl is decorated with foliage designs on the inner and outer surfaces, belonging to the type of bowl produced in large quantities during the late 19th century. This kind of design was also applied to the white porcelain produced at kilns in Fujian Province of China and in Arita in Japan. It has corase sand spur marks on the rim of the foot, and the coarse sand also stuck to the inner base indicates that the bowl was fired as part of a stack. It was repaired after being broken into six pieces. It is presumed that the bowl was collected from the waste deposite at a kiln site and restored.<br />
