This bottle with a narrow, long neck and a spherical body, which is missing its lid, was once used in ceremonial events to serve wine.
Elites of the Goryeo period are known for their love of drinking tea and wine in various occasions, and commissioned a variety of serving wares such as this wine bottle. The shape of this bottle with a narrow, long neck and a spherical body is believed to have been first invented in 9th-century Chinese Yue kilns of Northern Zhejiang province.
