This light grayish-blue stoneware jar consists of a globular body, short straight mouth and a little high flared pedestal foot. The body is decorated with two incised line and combed wave design. The foot whose bottom is rolled outward is a little high.<br />
<br />
This is a dark-gray, short-necked, high-fired stoneware jar with a pedestal. The neck is slightly splayed and then curves inwards towards a slightly blunt rim. Two sharp horizontal ridges mark the areas, respectively, where the vessel mouth and neck, and the neck and shoulder meet. The body is widest at its center. A set of two incised horizontal lines runs around the upper part of the body creating a wide raised band. The same technique was used to form two wide raised bands along the lower part of the body. A slightly crude wave design has been incised on the surface in between the upper and lower bands, as well as above the upper band. The pedestal is widely splayed, features four rectangular perforations, and has a round, thick edge.

The body is at its widest in the central part, while the flat base is rounded where it meets the body and is slightly indented at the edges. The entire body shows traces of rotation and water smoothing, with uneven surfaces resulting from rough water smoothing particularly visible on the lower part. The base also shows traces of having been pared and rubbed.

This bright grayish-blue stoneware jar consists of a round base, globular body and long flaring neck. Narrow single ridges encircle the middle part of the neck, dividing it into four sections. Each section is engraved with a wave pattern. The shoulder doesn&rsquo;t have any pattern.<br />
<br />
This is a blue-gray, long-necked, high-fired stoneware jar. The horizontal ridge on the upper part of the long vessel neck marks the boundary between the neck and its inwardly curved mouth. The mouth slopes inward and has a sharp edge. The neck is divided into four sections by three horizontal ridges spaced at equal intervals, and each section is decorated by a wave design rendered with a comb with approximately ten teeth. The jar is widest at its upper-middle part, and the base is round with a slightly recessed center.<br />

This reddish brown earthenware jar has a globular body and long, widely flared neck. The below surface of the body is adorned with beaten parallel line.<br />
<br />
This is a gray-brown, long-necked, high-fired stoneware jar with a round bottom. Its neck extends up in a straight line before flaring out suddenly near the rim, the edge of which is slightly concave. The body is globular and widest at its middle. Below this part of the vessel are decorations consisting of vertical paddled patterns that are parallel or superimposed. It is likely that the paddled pattern was also applied to the upper and middle parts of the vessel body, but was later erased during the rotation and water smoothing process. The inner surface of the body shows traces of rotation and water smoothing, along with fingerprint marks made in a vertical direction.<br />

It was common in the Gyeongju area, capital of the Silla Kingdom. The jar has a globular body, neck with straight sides and a little straight pedestal foot. Thick ridges encircle the mid upper part of the body and the lower and middle parts of the neck. The lower two sections of the neck are embellished with a delicate wave pattern. The low pedestal foot features eight square perforations at even intervals.<br />
<br />
This is a gray, long-necked, high-fired stoneware jar with a pedestal. The neck is slightly splayed and the mouth curves inwards. Two horizontal ridges on the neck are formed by deeply incised horizontal lines. This method has been repeatedly used to form the other bands, one located on the center of the neck and the other where the neck and body meet. The section between these bands is decorated with a wave design formed by an eleven-tooth comb. The body is widest towards the upper-middle section, and a horizontal ridge, formed by two horizontal incised lines, is located slightly above this
