Painted celadons dating to the Koryo dynasty bear resemblance to Chinese Cizhou wares and seem to represent a transition between the plain glazed and the inlaid Korean celadons. More casual in appearance than the inlaid wares, this ewer exhibits a freedom in shape and decoration that is rare among Korean celadons.
