Potteries with Four Ears
These are set of potteries that have four rings on their shoulders. These types of pottery, commonly referred to as “Mongol” potteries in Jeju, were produced in abundance during Yuan China. When used, a rope would be looped through the four rings for easy handling. In Korea, potteries with four ears have been found along the western coast and Jeju Island. In Japan, similar jars have been found in the Kyushu region. The geographic locations reflect the international relationship among Yuan China, Goryeo Korea, and Japan.
