DESCRIPTION: A large and attractive Sumida Gawa tankard with a red ribbed body, graceful handle, and high relief figures of two children. A traditional flowing flambe' glaze in dark brown and beige coats the top third of the mouth and handle. Fine attention to detail has been paid to the handmade figures of children standing on ledges against the ribbed, cold painted body. On the back in blue characters is the potter's mark of Inque Ryosai, a family of three generations of potters who made Sumida wares at the family kiln in Yokohama. Early 20th C. and in perfect condition; no chips or repairs. DIMENSIONS: 12" high (30.5 cm) x 7" wide (17.8 cm).
