Physical Description:

The wide, upright mouth of this vessel is such that it is also known as a “tray-mouthed bottle.” Many examples of this form were produced at sites such as Jinsan-ri, Haenam-gun, Jeollanam-do; or Gyeyul- ri and Chillyang-myeon in Gangjin-gun, Jeollanam-do. The base is wide and flat, to which are adhered a large amount of sand. The body is decorated with floral scrolls in underglaze iron brown in two places. Despite the rough texture of its clay and the presence of impurities on its surface, it has a fine gloss and retains its complete original form without damage.
