This is a reddish yellow, deep-bowl-shaped, low-fired earthenware vessel. Such vessels were generally used for boiling but this example contains no trace of use and is therefore likely to have come from a tomb. The vessel does not have a neck, the mouth is everted, and the flat edge of the rim features a groove. The vessel body is widest towards the upper-middle section, and the flat base is rounded where it joins the vessel body. The inner and outer surfaces of the vessel body show clear traces of paddling, but it is unclear whether these are cord-paddled markings. The base retains traces of the potter&rsquo;s wheel.<br />

<p>This bowl exemplifies early-tenth century celadon forms influenced by Chinese Yue ware. It has a halo-shaped foot (haemurigup), a characteristic of Yue ware. It is a high-quality celadon made from fine clay, coated by highly transparent glaze. Surface is plain while displaying crackles on its inner surface and parts of its outer surface.

Inlaying silver into ironware was a popular method of decorating metalwork that required high levels of skill. Numerous items were produced with inlay decorations. The entire lid and body of this hexagonal case are decorated with inlaid silver. The lid features a hexagonal design in its center surrounded by a continuous four-leaf flower design. The six sides of the body are decorated by three pairs of turtle designs, crane designs and deer designs, arranged alternately. The lid and body are bordered with a fret-patterned band. This case with a flat base is excellently preserved. This type of iron-lidded case with inlaid silver design was produced in large quantities from the nineteenth century to the early twentieth century, continuing through the Japanese annexation of the Korean Peninsula. Such cases are mostly octagonal; this is a rare hexagonal example.
