This Koryo Dynasty (918-1392) celadon ceramic bottle is from the Ferdinand Micklautz collection, and was exhibited in the Honolulu Academy of Arts in 1985 (pages 47 & 109 of the Asian Orientations: Treasures from Honolulu's Oriental Art Society catalog). This bottle is an example of how the Korean carftsmen used forms derived from China. It demonstrates a thorough familiarity with analagous forms produced in the 10th century in China, particularly of Yue-ware, and is quite similar to the well known Koryo bottle in the Seattle Art Museum.
Age: Koryo Dynasty (918-1392)
