|This is an interesting paid of two small hand molded bowls (mukozuke)with finger marks all over the bowls to give a dimpled effect. In the center of each is an underglaze blue design of a basket of flowers. Though similar in design and shape, one is larger than the other. The larger bowl measures 4 1/2 diameter at the top by 2 deep and a base that is 3 ½ diameter. The smaller of the two bowls measures 4 3/8 diameter at the top by 1 ¾ deep by 3 ¼ diameter at the base. They are both in excellent condition with no chips or hairlines. There is a two character mark on the inside of each bowl. However, my translator could only make out the first character that is Sei. We date them to the late Meiji period, circa 1880s-1910.|
