Gift of Stephen H. and Patricia O. Spurr from the Henry Jewett Greene Collection
A group of armed men struggles in a landscape while a helmeted female figure hovers on a cloud above them and points to a distant city that lies across an expanse of water. A man at the left with a green cuirass and cloth knotted about his waist and neck stands apart from the combatants and looks up toward the gesturing woman. Behind him appears a row of sword-wielding men locked in combat, with several casualties lying at their feet. On a hillock in the background a pair of oxen, an orange-gold colored sheep, and a winged dragon may be discerned.

Gift of Toshiko Ogita in memory of Tomoo Ogita
<p>The mouth of this dish has been pinched in six parts to produce a lobed shape. This form of vessel is typical of celadon produced in the area&nbsp;of Yongun-ri, Gangjin-gun, Jeollanam-do in the early Goryeo period. Glaze was thickly applied, and resulted in the very glossy surface covered with fine crazing. The dish has been repaired with a gold-colored substance in three places on the rim, while the outside of its foot retains traces of refractory spurs made from a mixture of coarse sand in three places.<br />

The profile bust of a young woman is depicted in the well of this dish. The rim features a variety of grotesque ornament, including two winged, serpent-like creatures with human heads, whose tails interlace at the top of the plate. Cornucopias full of fruit appear beneath these creatures, followed by weapons and shields, one of which bears the date 1526. At the bottom appears the head of a cherub supporting a vase of fruit.

The circular, smaller white porcelain plate has a design of gourds, flowers, vines and leaves around the rim. The gourds are outlined with blue underglaze and colored with yellow overglaze. Blue underglaze and transparent green overglaze are used for the leaves. The flowers and vines are drawn with red. The red enamel is worn off from some of the tendrils, a characteristic of 18th century Nabeshima. The reverse side has four clustered jewel or treasure motifs with four bows and streamers repeated three times. On the shallow foot, bold lines are drawn in a row like a comb. The design on the back is all drawn with blue underglaze. (Referencce: Becker, Sister Johanna. “A Group of Nabeshima Porcelain.")

Arita ware dish with design of chrysanthemums by a brushwood fence
1700 – 1732
Gift of Mr. and Mrs. George F. Green
This is a ritual dish assumed to have been produced at the private kiln near Bunwon-ri to supply the general pulic. The dish is deeper than the most other ritual vessels produced at the official court kilns, while the diameter of the mouth is small in relation to the maximum diameter of the foot. The clay and glaze are well fused. However, the the glazed surface has darkened due to the contamination by large amounts of ash. The base of the foot shows many traces of coarse sand supports. This type of ritual vessel with high foot is unique and simple in form that it was one of the Joseon ceramic vessels that was widely sought after by Western collectors.<br />

This ritual dish was produced at a regional kiln. It is a low-quality object with a rough texture, made from the clay mixed with sand, contaminated with many impurities on the tray. Its glaze is dark with blue-green tints, giving the vessel the appearance of celadon. Its foot has an octagonal cross-section.<br />
