|Set of five Japanese condiment or sauce dishes in the shape of Okame's face. These small dishes are hand shaped porcelain impressed with Okame's face in low relief on the front. They are each slightly different as might be expected. On average they measure 3" tall by 2 3/8" wide by 1/2" deep and the color ranges from a light grey to a pure white to a light celadon. I believe these date from the late Edo to early Meiji period from the look of the glaze the shape of the foot. ~|
