Meiji Period Ko-hirado Suiteki
Offers are Welcome!



This wonderful suiteki (water dropper) dates from the Meiji period (1868-1912). It is made in the Hirado style of pottery, a 400 year-old tradition. The city of Hirado is located in the Northwestern part of the island of Kyushu, the third biggest island of the Japanese archipelago. At the end of the 16th century, Korean potters brought from Korea by the Hirado feudal lord settled there and started making potteries for the use of his clan. Later, the production was commercialized and Hirado porcelains have since become world renowned.

This particular suiteki, larger than most of its kind, is a very fine example of the high level of craftsmanship of Hirado potters of the 19th century. The lifelike, delicately made frog rests on an inverted lotus seed head and creates a natural and peaceful composition.

Please inquire if you have some questions.
