A fabulous large Sumida Gawa low-bowl with full high-relief figures. This piece has an incised signature, Ryosai (Inoue), and dates to the late 19th to early 20th century Meiji Period, ca. 1910. The low-bowl is made of a soft raku pottery first developed in early 1800's. The Ryosai family was(is) renown for producing much of the Sumida Gawa ware and the highest quality Sumida Gawa ware from this period. This piece has whimsical applied 3-dimensional/high-relief figures clinging to the upper rim of the bowl. The upper portion of the bowl is glazed with a thick and splashed, runny flambe glaze. The glaze stops approximately 1/3 down the body exposing a reddish orange ground body.

Note: This is 1 of 4 pieces of a collection of Sumida Gawa I have. Stock numbers: 022, 023
