Many of the ceramic forms made during the Goryeo period likely existed in bronze as well, but metal was often melted down for reuse, so bronzes are far more rare. This type of vessel was most likely used for serving wine. The ceramic piece here is a very early example of Goryeo celadon: the glaze is still somewhat yellow brown, and the carved decoration is more clearly handwrought than later examples.
