Pottery: Unknown (Probably)
Cup stand with flowers. Stoneware, thrown, luted, carved and incised and celadon-glazed. This stand has a tray with flat everted rim, and a domed central support. The support is exquisitely decorated to resemble a lotus flower with carved and incised petals outside and a seed pod in the recessed centre. The tray is incised with closely-set radiating lines and the rim with a delicate and vivid flower scroll. The glaze is of fine jade colour; glossy and masterly applied. Eight quartzite spur-marks can be seen on the base.

Probably Sadang-ri ware.
This piece, which is one of the finest of the numerous Koryo cup stands, was presumably made at the Sadang-ri kilns around 1150, when celadon wares were particularly well decorated. No direct counterpart appears to be recorded.
