A sublime, and hard to find tokkuri (sake pouring vessel) dating from the early Edo period (1615-1868). This very attractive vessel is one of the earliest examples of porcelains made in the Arita and Imari regions, probably shaped by the first potters to make that kind of ceramics in Japan, after having been “relocated” there from Korea. The resemblance to Korean Joseon ware of the same period is striking, from the glaze to the “akikusamon” underglaze painted motif...
