This beautiful bowl represents the peak of celadon wares from Goryeo Dynasty. Both the elegance of its potting and the artistry of its decoration mark it as one of the finest examples of celadon ware. The sharp molding technique and the color of the glaze on this work may indicate the close relationship with Yaozhou kiln in Northern Song Dynasty of China.
