It has a wide mouth, straight but a little everted rim and bulbous body.<br />
<br />
This jar has a wide mouth and gray-green body. It is a product of a regional kiln. The glaze was wiped away from the rim of the foot, and the jar was placed on sand spurs during firing. The rim is flared, and its center of gravity is on the lower part of the body. The body has been repaired due to a long crack that extends all the way down to the base. The glaze is well fused, producing a glossy texture, but impurities on its surface have given it a green-gray colour. It was previously classified as buncheong ware, but recategorized as white porcelain in a recent examination.<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

The handle is attached to the lower-central part of the body; the upper end of the handle penetrates the side of the cup, while the lower end is joined by simply rubbing it against the cup&rsquo;s surface. There are traces of rotation and water smoothing on the inner and outer surfaces of the mouth. Natural glaze is visible in the parts around the round base.

The widest part of the bowl is located towards the upper part of the body. The foot of the bowl is short and round. There are traces of three thinly incised lines drawn on the bottom of the bowl to attach the foot.

Yuan water bottle from china, 13-14th four loop handles, non-Korean, frequently seen on Yuan shipwrecks 13-14th century, made in Southeast china<br />
(visiting Korean curators from Ehwa University, notes by Min Li 7/07)
<p>This is a brownish-balck glazed jar, produced in the 13th century of Yuan, China. Many of these jars were unearthed in the areas of Gangwha-do Island and Gyeonggi-do. It is still commonly rederred to as &ldquo;Mongolian jars.&rdquo; The entire surface, with the exception of part of the mouth, is coated in brownish-black glaze. Four loop-type lugs are attached to its shoulder. The large amount of sand mixed into the clay produced a rough texture. The flat base of the jar is cracked.</p>

Many bronze bottles such as the above two have been excavated from Goryeo tombs built between the twelfth and fourteenth centuries along with celadon vessels. This type of bottle with a long neck and widely flared mouth was also produced in celadon during the Goryeo period. The surfaces of both bottles are severely rusted, while the lower part of the bottles are damaged and perforated. The bottles have five rideges formed by attaching folded copper sheets. The foot of each bottle was made separately from a separate sheet of metal and attached later.
