This is a grayish black, high-fired stoneware bottle. Its neck splays to form a curved profile, and the edge of its rim is round. The body is widest at its lower part and connected to the neck without a break. Double or triple incised lines run around the body in two places. The section between the neck and the rim shows clear traces of glaze, though this cannot be determined for the rest of the bottle. The center of the base is slightly recessed.

Bronze bottles, bowls, plates and cutlery were placed as burial ware in Goryeo tombs along with celadon vessels. This bottle has traces of being splashed by muddy water, thus it is assumed to have been excavated from a tomb. This type of bottle with a long neck and flared mouth was also made in celadon in large quantities. The bottle is decorated with three ridges, and between the ridges are incised three thin lines. The mouth was made by folding the metal sheet inwards and joining the folds. The vertical foot has been attached separately. The entire bottle is covered by a thin patina, and part of its body has been ruptured. It, however, retains its original form and has been preserved well. Part of one side, which has been in contact with earth, is more decayed than the rest.

Pear-Shaped Bottle

Gift of Bruce and Inta Hasenkamp and Museum purchase made possible by Elder and Mrs. Sang-Yong Nam
<p>This is an intact hair oil bottle; an invaluable source for the information it provides about the form of Goryeo celadon oil bottles. The foot was made by removing the clay from the bottom of the base, while the foot rim shows the trase of glaze having been wiped away and has small grains of sand ahered to it. Glaze was oxidized in parts, yielding a yellow-brown color, and fine crackles are formed on the glazed furace. Glaze was poorly fused and there are glaze runnings on the lower part of the body.<br />

This brownish black bottle was made from porcelain clay coated in brownish-black glaze. The high-iron content of the glaze has given it a black shade. Sand has been removed from the clay, giving it a smooth texture. Coarse sand spurs were used during firing. The glaze is well fused and the surface is glossy. It remains intact and undamaged.<br />

This bottle has a slightly out-turned astragal mouth. Short slender neck and a bulbous body that is rather heavy. The whole foot is rather high and thick. The body is decorated with a simple abstract floral design in cobalt-blue pigment.<br />
<br />
Small bottles with short necks were generally used as containers of perfumed oil or precious liquids. This is a small oil bottle decorated with semi-abstract foliage design in cobalt blue. The foot shows no trace of kiln spurs, while the foot rim is unglazed and reveals the clay body. The colour of the cobalt pigment and the way it has been fired suggest that this bottle was produced in the early 20th century.The lower part of the body was slightly contaminated, but the bottle remains intact.<br />
