These shards of white porcelain plates discovered at the Jeju-mok gwana site have various inscriptions, either on the surface or inside the foot on the bottom. The inscribed characters seem to be either the name of the recipient or the maker (e.g., daenam [大男], makgae [막개]), or else the title of the office (e.g., byeolgwansang [別官上]).
