Korean Koryo (Goryeo), Joseon, or Chinese?

Anyone know their Celadon? It's a grey tint rather than green. A sandy bottom rim and 3 stilt marks.

Korean. Again, age is difficult to determine but likely to be 20th Century, if not 21st. The crackle glaze tends to be part of the manufacturing process these days, to give the items a patina of age.

In my reading, it's the base with the sand and stilt marks that should mean it's older. I haven't come across any 20 or 21st century Korean Celadon with sand and stilt marks, though it's possible I guess.

This is a useful page for info on old v's new pieces. The colour (grey rather than green), and the presence of potter's marks on the base point to those pieces being newer rather than older.

Also worth shining a torch inside to see how clean they are. If there are traces of soil (from burial) or blackened sooty deposit (from being exposed to the atmosphere for many years) then it points to older pieces. If it's very clean it points to new pieces.
