<br />
This white porcelain bottle is decorated with floral scrolls with black ink on the shoulder in two places. Its neck has been broken off and lost, while the remainer has been ground to smooth it. The bottle was modeled by traditional methods but was decorated with the imported pigment containing artificial chemicals. Blue-and-white porcelain using this kind of pigment was mostly produced during the Japanese colonial period (1910-1945).<br />

A round peach-shaped water dropper. The peach itself is covered in a white glaze and covered in bamboo stalks and leaves. These are embossed onto the peach and stand out even more as the iron brown underglaze comes through strongest on these details. The iron brown underglaze can also be seen along the base of the waterdropper. The hole is at the top of the peach.<br />

This is a peach-shaped water dropper shaped in a mold, featuring mold-impressed designs of peach leaf and branch on the surface. Its upper part is perforated by two water holes and the body is very light. Parts of the designs in high-relief are thinly glazed and tinged with brown. The foot is low. It was fired on the kiln shelf, which is an indication that it was produced in the early 20th century.<br />
