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 bowl is decorated with foliage designs on the inner and outer surfaces, belonging to the type of bowl produced in large quantities during the late 19th century. This kind of design was also applied to the white porcelain produced at kilns in Fujian Province of China and in Arita in Japan. It has corase sand spur marks on the rim of the foot, and the coarse sand also stuck to the inner base indicates that the bowl was fired as part of a stack. It was repaired after being broken into six pieces. It is presumed that the bowl was collected from the waste deposite at a kiln site and restored.<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 water dropper remains intact, except for a slight damage to its spout. 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

Such marks are found in the waste deposits of kilns in Bunwonri, Gwangju-gun, Gyeonggi-do at the end of the 19th century. The mouth has been severed lost.
