Why this is a
Masterpiece

A green-glazed bowl with a cover is not frequently seen from the Unified Silla period. This bowl has been recognized for the beauty of its surface, the tower-shaped handle and decorations of symbolic designs such as ring patterns which are dotted on the body as well as its outstanding formative beauty. As such, members of the Cultural Heritage Committee had once recommended that it be designated as a 'Treasure.'

History of the Object
This was accidentally discovered by a farmer who was tilling his field in Yongso village of Aju-dong, Geoje City. Traces of chamber tombs still remain in the surroundings. Subsequently, buried potteries and so on have been collected by Jinju National Museum, and in addition many potteries have been found.
