 An Unusual Satsuma Tri Pod Footed Covered Jar

Probably a late Edo Period, perhaps 1850-60, tripod footed, covered jar. While this interesting and attractive piece is unsigned, the cover rim and underside of the cover, along with the rim of the jar are unglazed suggesting an Edo attribution. In addition, the small crackle over a buff colored body seems to be characteristic of this period. The jar has nice symmetry and form with the upper shoulder bearng a green foliated band and at the apex of the shoulder, two grotesque or demon masks with moulded rings. The body is decorated with finely painted, nobel children at play, outlined in gold. The jar is supported on three feet, each in the form of a grotesque or demon mask. In excellent condition with no damage. 7.75" in height and 6.75" in diameter.
