This is an eight-lobed bronze mirror in a dark green or blackish green hue. It is divided into two registers by eightlobed ridge, first of which is decorated with floral scrolls. The inner register has two cranes encircling the suspension loop in the center with their wings extended and facing each other. This object may be compared to other crane-patterned mirrors excavated from the Geumcheon-dong tomb site in Cheongju-si, Chungcheongbuk-do Province.

Bowl with carved lotus design
12th century
Gift of Bruce and Inta Hasenkamp and Museum purchase made possible by Elder and Mrs. Sang-Yong Nam
<p>This is a celadon lidded bowl with the top of the lid decorated with a peony spray design inside a hexafoil outline inlaid with black and white slips. The foot was made by removing clay from the underside of the base and retains traces of quartzite spurs in three places. The glaze was slightly darkened on the upper part with faint gloss. The glaze is poorly fused on the base of the body, leaving practically no sheen. The piece is of high value, however, for the glimpse it offers of Goryeo&rsquo;s refined yet splendid inlaid celadon ware, thanks to its decorative design that depicts a peony in full bloom, inlaid with white clay.<br />

This is known as a pear shaped bottle vase with widely everted mouth, narrow neck that makes it easy to grasp and a round globular body that is bottom heavy. Five lines encircle the body and neck. The foot is rather high.<br />
<br />
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.

Gift of Professor Walter M. and Nesta R. Spink
This footed bowl with painted designs is of 11th-13th century Iranian origin. The object stands upon a broad pierced foot, with a stem extending upwards supporting a shallow dish. It is done in brown, green and gold. The decoration consists of a number of birds compartmentalized by a gold background that serves to set off their shapes and creates a free-form design. Sgraffito cuts through the slip on glaze to a layer of brown that creates part of the form of the bird or its decoration. All of this is set against green cross-hatched areas. <br /><br />
