Physical Description This is an ordinatley jar shaped like maebyeong with a wide mouth. The shoulder is decorated with iron-pained semi-abstract vignette in two places. The decorated design is reddish brown in color, while its background color is pale gray-green. The foot and outer base are thoroughly glazed, on which are placed coarse sand during firing. The walls become thicker towards the base. The glaze was poorly applied. Therefore, the clay body is exposed in some places around the foot, and blisters reracuted ruptures resulted from bursting of the glaze.
