Why this is a
Masterpiece

It represents the typical characteristics of the solidity and curvaceousness of white porcelain of the early Joseon period. A strand of a rope that twines around the narrow neck and hangs down with its end rolled is depicted in iron-brown glaze. Both are simple design with lots of blank and strong lines drawn without hesitation boast about the prime stage of craftsmanship. Totally controlled description of blank and design is quite simple but gives a strong impression.

History of the Object
On the bottom of the inside of the base, some Korean characters are written in iron-brown glaze. Its meaning cannot be deciphered, but can be presumed that this bottle was produced after the invention of Hangeul.
