This mirror features designs of two birds, coupled with floral motifs, positioned symmetrically on the left and right sides. Eight-foiled barbed bronze mirror is general. This type is a modified form of that.<br />
<br />
This blue-green bronze mirror decorated with a double crane design is excellently cast. It is five-lobed, and the registers are also divided by five-lobe shaped ridge. The outer register is decorated with scroll design while the inner register is adorned with a pair of cranes, with wings spread and heads turned right, arranged on either side of the central suspension loop against the honeysuckle scroll background. This object may be compared to other crane-patterned mirrors excavated from the Geumcheondong site tomb in Cheongju, Chungcheongbuk-do Province.

Gift of Mrs. Caroline I. Plumer for the James Marshall Plumer Collection
<p>This bowl is an example of an early celadon influenced by Chinese Yue ware. Similar vessels have been excavated from sedimentary layers of the Kiln no. 10 at Yongun-ri, Gangjin-gun, Jeollanam-do. The design, which features two parrots with their wings spread around the bowl&rsquo;s inner wall, is also similar to the design found in Yue ware. This piece counts as medium quality ware, since its glaze is poorly fused. Refractory spurs are stuck around the rim, while the glaze has flowed downwards. There are six refractory spur marks on the shallow foot.<br />
