of pear form with long cylindrical neck and carefully painted in medium and darker strokes of underglaze cobalt of a powerful dragon striding through the clouds chasing the flaming pearl! The bottle also applied with a transparent soft glaze of blue cast. There is also a "kiln or artist's mark?" just behind the dragon's head. This is possibly from the royal Bunwon Kilns which stopped in 1883 when the royalty withdrew their support of these kilns. Marks on Joseon (Choson) era pieces are rare, but they are not unheard of. All of the above is from a reputable dealer in NYC. Height is 11 inches or 27.7 cm.
