Pear-shaped stoneware wine bottle with white slip and sgraffito designs. Stylized foliage is incised across the main register of the body, separated from the register above by two incised bands. Above this are perhaps incised stylized petals, and separating them from the flared lip of the bottle are two more incised bands. The incisions reveal the gray clay beneath the white slip.<br />

This bottle is painted with thick white slip on its entire body and lotus petals decorate below the neck using a sgraffito technique. With a sharp tool, white slip is carved away from the belly to form scrolls. Traces of fine grains of sand remain on the rim of the foot, while the outer base also retains the marks of an implement that is pressed again the base. These are common characteristics shared with other pieces of 15th and 16th century buncheong wares. The glaze is well fused, producing a shiny surface, pale green and transparent.<br />

The dish belongs to a large group of sgraffiato wares, examples of which have been found from Afghanistan to northwest Iran. They are characterized by an incised design cut into a slip and enhanced with glazes of different colors, frequently yellow and green. In this particular case, and others like it, the concentric scratched lines are clearly determined by compass while the filler patterns are somewhat less controlled. The pigment is not applied to coincide with the engraved line but rather forms an independant web of color over it.<br />
