Physical Description:

The form of this bottle is unusual in that its body and neck are almost the same length. The glaze is partially oxidized, producing an orange tint, while the surface shows contamination by impurities and pinholes, and cracks are formed towards the foot. The bottle is glossy overall, but the glaze was unevenly applied and has run in some parts. The clay has a high kaolin content, and the bottle has thin, light walls. White porcelain of this kind was produced in Yanggu-gun, Gangwon-do, and Cheongsong-gun, Gyeongsangbuk-do.
