Hirado Boy Water Dropper

Hirado Boy The little boy is seated with his feet apart holding a large palm shaped leaf with his hands. His slightly turned face is carved in good details. The brown and blue glazes settled in the carved lines giving the lines good depth and flow. Flaws occurred in the firing process. There is a wavy half inch running on the boy’s neck. On the base are tiny flaw lines. A painter used this suitaki for preparing ink. There are ink stains on the pouring spout. In Hirado Ware by Philip Cardeiro, the author discussed the use of clear blue, russet brown and black in the late 18 to early 19 century. (pages 15 - 16) Dimensions: 3.35” long, 1.5” wide, 2.5” high Date: Late Edo Period, first half 19 century
