This is a handsome pottery koro for incense that has a cutaway design of flowers from which the incense smoke arises. The stoneware koro has a black under glaze and then a milk chocolate brown second glaze wiped on above that so that the black shows through in streaks. The base of the rim of the top and the bottom of the koro are both unglazed allowing us to see the granular nature of the clay used to form the koro...

A handsome little tea jar decorated with a traditional Samurai wave pattern design in handpainted slip trailing decoration, under the glaze. Alternatively, the design could be a highly stylized interpretation of the traditional "floating wheel" design that dates back to the 12th century. That motif derives from the early practice of soaking the wheels for bullock carts in the Kamo River in Kyoto; wheels thus treated were stronger and held their shape longer...

Decorated in underglaze iron-brown with a stylized chrysanthemum head, this Seto oil plate dates to the 19th century and measures 22.2cm diameter, or 8 3/4". It has a firing scar on part of the rim and a hairline crack, visible in an image. These plates were used to catch drippings from lamps used in wood and paper lanterns. Such lanterns sometimes are reproduced in ukiyo-e prints and paintings.

This wonderful Kutani shallow bowl dates to around 1850 (almost all Kutani ware found on the market today date to post 1868 when the export market began). The Matsuyama seal mark is on the base in cobalt blue underglaze. To my knowledge stilt marks on Kutani ware are rarely seen. Even with the help of the stilts this bowl cracked when it was fired as you can see in the pictures. The chips on the rim of the base also appear to be original from when it was first made...

A very sweet small pottery Tokkuri (sake bottle) done in a white grained ribbed body covered with white slip and with a crackled brilliant glaze.

On the other side there is a stylized line of pine trees - all done in cobalt blue underglaze. Old chip at the mouth. Possibly Seto ware. Has an old collectors label on one side...

The jarlets are roughly potted - almost a Mingei folk art look to them. The pottery has a dark brown glaze - no artist's mark that we can find...

A charming Japanese pottery water dropper, suiteki, used by scholars in preparing the sumi ink for calligraphy. This fine piece is shaped in the form of Mt. Fuji - but has the face of Okame peeking out of the side. When looked at from the side, the peak of Fuji-San then resembles a pointed hat on Okame's head. The piece is unglazed with the exception of six small white enamel dots below Okame's face - somewhat like a necklace.

The base of the suiteki is concave and one can see the swi...
