19th Century Korean Blue and White Porcelain Six-Sided Water Dropper painted with Chrysantemums, whose many petals symbolize fertility and prosperity. The water dropper is one of the most prized possessions of a Korean scholar. He used it constantly to mix his ink, so he became very familiar with this object and attached to it, and came to love the way it felt in his hand, and was inspired by its form and beauty. A scholar's water dropper was a symbol of his refinement and good taste. In keeping with the Korean Confucian gentleman's aesthetic, artifice and colorful designs that catered to base instincts were to be avoided, while a natural and deep respect for nature was to be upheld. 2.25w x 1h inches, 5.75 x 2.5 cm.

Very Fine and Rare Goryeo Dynasty Inlaid Celadon Cosmetic Box, 12th to 13th Century. The last photo here is a similar example that was in Christie's September 22, 2005 Sale of Japanese and Korean Art. We are sure you will agree that the Christie's example is not as refined, detailed, and beautifully designed as the piece that we offer here, with its inlaid lotus, geese, willow tree, and reeds. The condition is also excellent. On the side, you can see two small spaces where the potter's fingers covered the glaze. This is original to the piece so it is not a condition issue. It is in pretty much its original condition. The Christie's example was estimated at $10,000 to $15,000, 10 years ago. Dimensions: 4.75 inches wide, 3 inches high (50% larger than the Christie's example, which was 3.25 inches wide).

Exceptional Example of a Joseon Dysnasty Blue and White Painted Porcelain Bottle with a lovely design and form, exquisitely painted in the classic court style. The sensitive and skilled painter of this fine bottle began with a light blue ring around the neck and two darker rings at the foot under the Youi scroll design that encircles the bottom of the body. The Youi is a mushroom-shaped scepter or talisman. Having defined his canvas, he composed a most idyllic microcosm of butterflies, a Korean symbol of happiness, fluttering past peonies that spray in every direction, contrasting with the very small and quietly perched bird. The peony is a symbol of love and prosperity. The form itself is graceful and subtle and begins with a gently flared mouth atop a narrow neck that subtly and almost imperceptibly flares out to an elongated round body with a low hip that gently curves downward to the foot with a recessed base. The stone-like heft of the bottle and color of the pure white clay, along with the skilled painting make it almost certain that this fine blue and white porcelain bottle was made at the royal Kumsari kiln. Height: 10 inches (25.5cm); Circumference: 18.5 inches (47cm).
