A white glazed Korean bottle, first half 17th Century.

The bottle, of plain bladder form, appears in an inventory at Burghley known as the 1690 Devonshire Schedule. This recorded an immense bequest from the 3rd Countess of Devonshire to her only daughter Anne, wife of John, 5th Earl of Exeter, and encompassed the entire contents of her suite of private apartments at Chatsworth.
