A small, stoneware jar of squat proportions, with a narrow, upright neck and a short, cylindricrical foot. The jar is decorated with loosely drawn floral patterns in cobalt blue underneath an overalll whitish glaze.<br />This jar makes an interesting contrast to 2002/2.18, which has a very similar design in a crisp, dark blue; the faded, smudged blue here may be a result of less than ideal conditions in the kiln.

A small, flat-bottomed stoneware jar, with nearly straight sides flaring out to shoulders only slightly broader than the base, and narrowing to a short neck with an everted rim. The decoration consists of broad horizontal bands of cobalt blue pigment at the base, on the shoulder, and at the neck. The overall glaze, normally a whitish color, is a light brown here, possibly because of less than ideal conditions in the kiln.

A sturdy, well-potted stoneware jar, with a spherical bottom, a sharply angled shoulder, and a wide slightly flaring mouth. The decoration consists of four bands of combed wavy lines: one at the waist, one at the shoulder, and two on the neck. The neck bands are bordered by three ridges, a double ridge topmost.<br />
<br />
This is a blue-gray, long-necked, high-fired stoneware jar with a round bottom. A horizontal ridge marks the boundary between the jar&rsquo;s round body and its neck. The steeply rising neck is divided into three sections by a set of two horizontal ridges on the upper part and a single horizontal ridge on the lower part. The central and lower parts of the neck have been decorated using a six-tooth comb to create a wave design. The upper body and the inner and outer surfaces of the neck retain traces of rough rotation and water smoothing. The upper part of the body slopes inwards at an angle sharp enough to form an edge. The surface above and below this edge are decorated with wave design

This grayish-blue stoneware jar has a globular body and short, a little flared neck. The entire surface of the body is adorned with vertical line and encircled with thin incised lines. The base is flat.<br />
<br />
This is a gray, bottle-shaped, high-fired vessel. It is covered entirely with parallel diagonal striations, and these have been erased in some parts by rubbing the surface from right to left. The neck, connected to the top of the body where it suddenly grows much narrower, flares widely toward the rim, which has a grooved edge. The body is widest at its middle, around which two thin horizontal lines are incised. The lower part of the outer surface has been pared during rotation. The base of the vessel is flat and has a recessed center.

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

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.

Large porcelain jar decorated with cobalt pigment under colorless glaze. Repeating clouds border the rim of the jar, while a dragon head and feet are depicted on the main body below. Two blue bands separate the design from the white base below, balancing the rim and bottom portion of the jar. The very tip and base of the piece are also marked with blue bands.<br />
<br />
This is a blue-and-white jar with cloud and dragon designs which is tought to have been produced at Bunwon-ri, Gwangju-si, Gyeonggi-do around the year1883, when official court kilns there were privatized. The dragon is painted with cobalt on a large jar, but with only its head fully exposed and the body largely concealed by white clouds. This distinctive design is rarely found in blue-and-white porcelain. Two blue horizontal lines encircle the rim, while its shoulder features a yeoui-head band. It is glazed all the way down to the outer base, and coarse sand was used as kiln spurs, which leaves its mark on the foot rim. The Chinese charact

Dark brown glaze has been dripped over the pot from above, allowing it to flow unevenly so that the lighter clay body shows through in an unpredictable pattern. The jar appears rounded in gradations, and has a small circular lid, as well as base.<br />
<br />
This jar is made of white clay and coated with brown-black glaze. No glaze was applied to the inner surface of the lid or the rim of the jar with which the lid comes into contact. The shoulder is incised with a wave design, while an incised line also surrounds the upper part of the body. The glaze is well fused to form a glossy surface. The jar is almost intact.<br />
