In the Goryeo dynasty, many celadon cups were produced in various shapes and designs. Cup-stands were produced using various materials including metalware, wooden lacquer ware, and earthenware. They were produced from the early Goryeo dynasty, and most were excavated from kiln sites that created quality earthenware. They have been discovered among goods salvaged from the sea and at sites of Buddhist temples, tombs, buildings of the Goryeo dynasty, with the most discovered at Buddhist temple sites. This implies that saucers were used for rituals in Buddhist temples.
