Description A Korean ceramic bottle vase circa 19th century late Joseon Dynasty (1392-1910), he smallest one in our the three bottles in our collection. The vase is of a classic bottle form with a bulbous body and a long neck with a slightly rolled mouth rum. The glaze is mostly white with a slight blueish tint, but in areas shows some splashes of darker embedded flecks as a result of kiln firing and also two spots of mis-glaze. The bottle is simple in form and devoid of decoration reflecting the aesthetic concept of restrained elegancy of Joseon Dynasty. It was made for actual use such as storing liquor, or perhaps holding flower offering on the altar etc., rather than pure display. It has a rustic charm typical of vernacular ceramic from late Joseon (Yi Dynasty) for domestic use.
 For a similar bottle vase with white glaze, see Accession Number 2007.481 in the collection of The Metropolitan Museum of Art and Object Number 86:1979 in the collection of Saint Louis Art Museum (last pic).
