Why this is a
Masterpiece

The bottle is skillfully adorned with a carved bamboo design: each stalk splits into two at the neck, and the joints are executed in incised double lines. The lustrous, jade-green glaze is evenly applied over the entire surface but has gathered thickly along the incised depressions. The glaze has some crackle and is flecked with brown spots where the vessel was exposed to oxidizing flames. The glazed base is neatly trimmed and has clay spur-marks. It is designated as Korean National Treasure No. 169.

History of the Object
This pear-shaped bottle with its long, tapering neck is of exquisite quality and attests to the dexterous craftsmanship of Goryeo potters. This shape had its origins in the Chinese Southern Song celadons celadon, but the harmonious and refined Goryeo Wares far surpass their Chinese prototypes in both form and decoration.
