Its recessed base, created by removing clay from the bottom, retains traces of fine sand support. This angular bottle was shaped using a mold and has a strong sheen. A large number of cracks and contaminants, however, have darkened the surface. The clay is well sintered, forming a sturdy body.<br />

This water dropper was produced at a kiln in Bunwon-ri, Gwangju-si, Gyeonggi-do at the end of 19th century. Its upper surface features an outline painted around the edge and a floral spray design in the center, both rendered in cobalt blue. The design is bluish black in color, a phenomenon sometimes caused by high iron and manganese content in the cobalt underglaze.

The sand spur marks left around the foot are often found on white porcelain produced at private kilns within the vicinity of Bunwon-ri area after the privatization of Bunwon-ri kilns
