A Rare Japanese Arita Export Urinal, Circa 1700.
A JAPANESE EXPORT URINAL, CIRCA 1700.

A rare Arita porcelain urinal made for export to the West, probably the Netherlands, at the beginning of the 18th century. This is not the kind of export item encountered often so perhaps it was made as the result of a private commission by a trader. The enamel decoration was applied in Holland, 'Amsterdams Bont', in order to make the item fit in with the new fashionable coloured porcelains arriving from Japan at the time.

Approximately 20 cm high, 17.5 cm diameter. Fine undamaged condition.

Please study the photographs.
