An interesting Japanese stoneware bowl with an overglaze picture of what appears to be either Buddha in a relaxed position or possibly a Buddhist priest. The design is done in a chocolate brown glaze over a cream colored slightly crackled base glaze. The bottom of the bowl has the same cream color with the single exception of a fine brown line that encircles the bowl. The foot is unglazed and shows impressions of the finger prints of the pottery – not signed. We date the bowl to the middle to late Meiji period, circa 1880-1900. It measures 6 ¾” diameter and is 3” deep. Condition is excellent.
