Pinetrees and cranes are one of 10 symbols of immortality in Korea traditionally.
Both the teapot and the cups are decorated with a pattern of pinetree and inlaid cranes, which symbolize immortality. Korean celadon pottery was well known throughout history, and this crane pattern is the most famous design for Korean celadon. All of the components of this cup set are thick-walled, so the set is slightly heavy. The potter paid great attention to detail in creating the painted design on the tea set. The painting of cranes flying among the clouds looks delicate and the surface of the pottery is extremely smooth even with the existence of crazing. This celadon tea set is truly a fine example of Korean celadon pottery skill.
