This is a yusamashi or water cooler, a container which is part of sencha or tea set which was made by the famous Japanese nun Otagaki Rengetsu. This piece, guaranteed authentic, is signed by Rengetsu along with a poem for which she famously carved into the surface of the pottery vessel. 3 3/8 inches across the surface. No restoration. A similar piece can be seen on page 56 of the catalog on Rengetsu "Black Robe, White Mist." Very fine.
