Why this is a
Masterpiece

The characteristic shape of this vase has its origin in the Chinese ancient bronze vessel. However, in contrast to the solemn and heavy-looking Chinese prototype, the flared rippled foot, expanded melon-shaped body, and the flowering rim of this vase are extremely light and sumptuous, creating a perfect harmony with the pale and delicate glaze.

History of the Object
This celadon bottle was reportedly from the tomb of King Injong of the Goryeo period. Derived from a liquor bottle of a Chinese bronze ware, it was also produced in ceramic in the Northern Song Dynasty and was transmitted to Korea.
