Many black-glazed vessels of this type were produced in the areas of Jeongok-ri, Uijeongbu-si, and Yeoju-si in Gyeonggi-do in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. Made from coarse, colored clay, its black-glazed surface shines like that of porcelain. It has a lot of sand and bubbles on its surface, producing a rough texture, while fragments of other vessels have become embedded in its shoulder section during firing, but its glaze is well fused, producing a smooth sheen.<br />

Many white porcelain bottles of this type were produced at Bunwon-ri in the 19th century. One side of its body is decorated with a spray of plum blossom, with the stem and flowers rendered in underglaze iron brown and cobalt blue, respectively. The relatively vivid colors of iron and cobalt colors made the decorations highly effective. The entire foot was glazed, while the foot rim retains traces of fine sand spurs. The precipitation of ash deposits on one side has produced pale green spots. However, this is a high-grade object with transparent and well-fused glaze.<br />
