A Japanese Studio Bowl  Dimpled Sides  - Meiji/Taisho
This is a handsome studio bowl with a series of four dimpled impressions and a wonderful blend of glaze colors. The base color is a crackled tan glaze then around the sides there are area of soft green chocolate brown and a light brown rim. The interior has the same light brown crackled glaze as the rim, The glazing stops about 1 above the base, which reveals the dark brown clay from which the bowl was made covered with a light clear glaze. The lower section has a series of five raised rings - then stops and is plain all the way down to and on the base.

The control shown in the glazing is masterful. The piece measures 5 diameter and is 3 deep. It is in excellent condition with no chips or cracks. We date it to the late Meiji to Taisho period, circa 1905-1925 possibly even into a later period prior to the 40s. The bowl does not have a signature.
