Why this is a
Masterpiece

This is one of the few pieces which is a white porcelain from the early Chosun dynasty (1392~1910) that were excavated from the archaeological site. Even though the mouth of the bottle was restored, the rest has been well preserved. Inlaid and iron glazed floral and fish designs on the body is one of the styles that appeared in the early Chosun dynasty. This is one of the excellent white porcelains of the time in regards to the artistic expression of the motives.

History of the Object
This is a white porcelain wine bottle which was excavated from a tomb, Beophungni, Paju, and then restored. The bottom of the bottle is so worn that it suggests that it was probably used for a long time. To create a white porcelain, the biscuit made of white clay was covered with a transparent pure glaze and fired. Some years before and after 1480, the mainstream of the Chosun pottery tradition gradually changed from Buncheong to white porcelain.
