Celadon Water dropper made during the Goryeo period.
A Water dropper is a tool used to pour a small amount of water onto an inkstone during calligraphy, and was prized as one of the Four Treasures of Stationery in Korea.
For this reason, it developed uniquely and was made with a wide variety of designs from the Goryeo period to the Yi Dynasty period.
It has a typical round shape for Water dropper, and is short and resembles an abacus bead when viewed from the side.
There is a water inlet on the top and a cylindrical extraction port on the side, which you can fill with water by submerging it in water.
The wide surface of the vessel is decorated with two hemispherical protrusions and a pattern created using the inlaid technique of filling the carved grooves with black and white soil.
The dot pattern is laid out like fireworks at the top, and the surrounding leaf pattern is an unusual design in which two colors, black and white, are connected.
Below that, white leaf patterns and lotus petal patterns fill the surface of the vessel.
Round shapes were often made in white porcelain during the Goryeo dynasty, but they were surprisingly rare in Goryeo celadon.

There is aged deterioration on the entire surface, but there is some luster.There is also dirt attached to a part of the waist.There is no conspicuous flaws.
