This black and white chalk drawing on blue paper depicts a loosely sketched landscape featuring rock formations and small hills. The rocks in the foreground are highlighted in white chalk as is what appears to be a glimpse of sky in the upper right corner.
This ceramic vase has a long oval shape with a wide neck, rounded lip and sloping shoulder area. The circular rings from the process of being thrown on the wheel can be seen beneath the glaze. The glaze is a yellow-orange matt, with dark brown patches, over a shiny celadon green and iridescent purple base.
Small blue-and-white jar with abstracted plant design
Artist Unknown, Korea
This bottle has a slightly out-turned astragal mouth. Short slender neck and a bulbous body that is rather heavy. The whole foot is rather high and thick. The body is decorated with a simple abstract floral design in cobalt-blue pigment.
This lidded vessel forms the shape of a duck, with a tail pointing from the rear and a head rising to face forward in the front. Qhite slip was applied with visible and long brish strokes, and iron oxide painting adds a rusty hue to match the lower, unglazed clay color.

Bottle with full, rounded base that tapers into a thin neck that terminates in a lipped rim. From the neck up, the vase has a brown glaze. The body has a brownish gray glaze with a white drizzled squiggle decoration along it.
A plump sparrow is perching on a bamboo branch, which is bending from the main branch on the left side of the painting. The bamboo has young and mature leaves. The background is left as blank. The mounting is made of creamy silk brocade with blue green silk brocade strips. Brown brocade pieces are pasted on the top and the bottom of the mounting. There is a seal in red ink on the left corner. Wrinkles on the top and right lower side of the bid; some smaller worm holes and one large hole underneath the bird, but all repaired.
