Gyeonggi Provincial Museum

This elaborately decorated pillow is a fine example of the tradition by which celadon was made for and used exclusively by members of the royal family and the aristocracy during the Goryeo Period (918-1392). The pillow features a practical design with a concave middle part, and is inlaid with chrysanthemums in all faces where flowers are white while the stalks and leaves black.
