The upper surface of this vessel features a circle with the Chinese character &quot;je (祭: ancestral rite)&quot; rendered inside in cobalt blue pigment. The tray features blemishes, while the rims show traces of use. The foot retains traces of coarse sand supports stuck to it during firing. This type of ritual vessel has been excavated from the upper sediment layers of waste deposits of kilns in front of what is now Bunwon-ri Elementary School in Gwangju-si, Gyeonggi-do. Such vessels are presumed to have been produced immediately before the Bunwon-ri kiln cloised down and to have been widely supplied to the general public.&nbsp;<br />

A large amount of stationery was produced in Bunwon-ri, Gwangju-si, Gyeonggi-do at the end of the 19th century. Demand for water dropper was particularly high, thus it was produced in various forms with diverse designs. The top of this round water dropper is decorated by painting lotus flower and buds. Its background color is a slightly dark shade of blue-gray, while the lotus design is also rendered in opaque blue color with gray tints. Its foot was entirely glazed and shows traces of a fine sand support. It is perfectly preserved without damage.<br />

This small jar is decorated with three horizontal lines around the rim and floral scrolls on the body. It was placed on coarse sand during firing. Poor sintering of clay and fusion of glaze have produced many pinholes. Glaze is not evenly coated on the surface, causing glaze crawling and diminishing of gloss. Product of a regional kiln in the late 19th century, the jar is damaged around the rim. Small jars as this one were esteemed by collectors, who were keen on small objects, in the 1980s.<br />
