This is a grayish brown small jar with a short neck and a globular body. It is dated to the end of the 19th century, judging from its motifs, color of cobalt-blue and shape. It is decorated with a line around the rim and with floral scrolls on the shoulder. The entire foot is glazed and has grains of coarse sand stuck to it. Extensive contamination from impurities on its surface has given it a yellow tint overall.<br />

This bottle was produced in Bunwon-ri, Gwangju-si, Gyeonggi-do. It is decorated on the entire surface with ten longevity symbols, including deer, pine trees, and cranes, rendered in underglaze cobalt blue. Ten longevity symbols were frequently chosen to decorate the stationery, bottles, and jars produced in the late 19th century at kilns in Bunwon-ri. This is a high-quality white porcelain bottle, with well sintered clay and glaze and outstanding cobalt blue colouring.<br />
