Why this is a
Masterpiece

The wide-flaring rim, narrow neck, and voluminous body are typical of porcelain bottles produced in the early Joseon period. The foot is quite large and high. The designs are inlaid in intaglio on the clay body and then filled with kaolin. The neck is decorated with scroll motifs and is bordered by two lines. The body is decorated with simplified inlaid designs of peony scrolls in intaglio in red slip (which turns black after firing). These black lines are very thin and reddish. Soft paste clay was used. This bottle is coated with a light and transparent porcelain glaze and there is no crazing.

History of the Object
This is a white porcelain wine bottle from the early days of the Joseon Dynasty. The black inlaid designs applied to white porcelain were first found in the Goryeo celadon made during the latter half of the 15th century.
