This kundika produced during the Goryeo Dynasty features an egg-shaped body decorated with a round, lid-shaped rim above a long neck. This bronze work in general exhibits the characteristic style of Goryeo kundikas, but, uniquely, it lacks a spout. A willow and waterfowl design, which was commonly used to decorate kundikas and Goryeo celadon ware, is beautifully inlaid in silver across the entire body of the vessel.
