Elegant celadon teapot with a set of five matching cups.
Vivid hand-painted crane which blends well with the celadon surface.
Beautiful line of fine crazing which increases the value of pottery.
Ergonomic handle for a comfortable grip.
Tea set includes: 5 cups, 1 hot-water cooler (Sookwoo), 1 teapot (Dahgwan), and a paper packaging box.
Both the teapot and the cups are decorated with a pattern of clouds and inlaid cranes, which symbolize immortality. Korean celadon pottery was well known throughout history, and this crane pattern is the most famous design for Korean celadon. All of the components of this tea set are thick-walled, so the set is slightly heavy, setting it apart from cheaply made pottery. The potter paid great attention to detail in creating the painted design on the tea set. The painting of cranes flying among the clouds looks delicate and the surface of the pottery is extremely smooth even with the existence of crazing. This celadon tea set is truly a fine example of Korean celadon pottery skill.

Celadon is a type of jade-green porcelain. Production of this type of ceramic ware reached its height during the Goryeo Dynasty(918∼1392) in Korea, and it is therefore commonly referred to as Goryeo celadon. The clay used to make celadon pots contains trace amounts of iron, and after a pot is thrown, it is covered with a glaze which also contains iron and is fired at a temperature exceeding 1,200 degrees Celsius. The purity of glaze with its unsurpassed jewel-like green color and its achievement in diverse decorative technique such as inlaid, carving, moulding, underglaze painting, sculpting, incising and openwork make Goryeo celadon stands out as the best among its contemporaneous Chinese and Japanese products.
