Catalogue Description:
From "Korean Art Collection in the Brooklyn Museum" catalogue: This mounted jar with a straight mouth has a single band-shaped handle attached to its side and three triangular perforations decorating the pedestal. A thick greenish brown ash glaze is on the shoulder. A pair of incised lines forms a decorative band in the center of the vessel, which is filled with closely incised, tight wave motifs.
