This jar has a long and upright mouth with a robust shoulder that give way to a body tapering toward the base. The crane, cloud, pine tree and rock are painted with blue and red copper pigment.<br />
<br />
This jar was produced at a kiln in Bunwon-ri, Gwangju-si, Gyeonggi-do after the privatization of official court kilns in 1883. Ten longevity symbols, including pine trees, rocks, lingzhi fungus, deer, cranes, clouds and bamboo, are decorated in cobalt-blue and copper-oxide pigment was used in parts to decorate the jar. Such jars featuring the ten longevity symbols were often used at events such as elder statesmen&rsquo;s gathering (giroyeon) and 60th birthday parties (hoegabyeon). Crackles were formed on the mouth and body, which are contaminated with impurities, but it remains intact overall. The foot retains traces of coarse sand supports, but lots of cracks were formed.<br />
