Physical Description

This is a maebyeong decorated in underglaze iron brown. As the glaze was not su ciently fused during ring, the vase has a bright yellow-brown hue. Two large oral scrolls are decorated on the two sides of the body in iron brown. Its glazed surface is dull due to insu cient fusion and glaze had shivered in many parts, revealing the body. The foot is low but with a wide rim. This type of greenish-brown glazed celadon decorated in iron brown was produced in large quantities around the areas of Jinsan-ri, Haenam-gun, Jeollanam-do.
