A horizontal view of a riverside congested with buildings and shipping on both sides. The river recedes to the center right; at the far distance is the billowing smoke of a steam tug and the dome of a distant church. In the foreground are low barges with figures standing or working. Along the lefthand bank are warehouses and other buildings, many with signs indicating that the proprietor makes sails, rope, and other naval implements.

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 />

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 />

With a slightly flared thick rim, this bowl was produced at a regional kiln. Bowls or dishes were generally produced in three different standard sizes: large, medium, and small. This one belongs to the medium size. Clay body is exposed on the foot, with coarse sand stuck to its rim. This is a lowquality object, on which the glaze ran downwards, resulting in an uneven surface, but its soft texture due to the lack of sheen is what distinguishes Josoen white porcelain from Chinese or Japanese white porcelain.<br />

These are <em>jubal</em>, a type of bowl used for serving steamed rice and often also called a <em>sabal</em>. The upper surfaces of the lids of these bowls are decorated with incised lines. Their bases are flat, without feet. The shapes of bowls follow regional characteristics. In northern provinces, rims curve inwards, and bowls are relatively short. In southern provinces, the walls stand almost straight, while bowls themselves are relatively tall.<br />
