Set of Five Edo to Meiji Period Oribe ware Mukozuke

A set of five later of revival oribe ware mukozuke (or ceramic pieces used in kaiseki course meals). According to the box inscription, it is thought that the work was made during the Edo Period or later. Interestingly, the inscription continues that the piece was seen by Rozanjin and Miwa Kyuwa, the noted master of Hagi ware. Although not much is known about the origin of the set of five pieces or whether or not Rozanjin and Miwa Kyuwa did see the set, the cup like form and the interesting glaze is appealing to the eye.

Oribe wares are known for either their black and white contrasts or the famous green with brown color patterns set in a white background. This set contains green glazes with a mixture of blue, which is not seen with standard Oribe wares with a flower motif painted on the white base.

Age: 19th-early 20th century.

Size: Height: 2.5" Diameter : 3"
