19th century/Meiji period Japanese pottery kogo (box for incense during tea ceremony) in a form of a crouched monkey wearing a hat used in Sambaso dance. Raku pottery produced in the Kyoto region, wonderful potting with well captured posture on the animal assuming human attitude. Pink/caramel glaze with white and black enamels. Stamped SETSURAKU on the bottom. Great subtle piece in Japanese taste. Height 2 3/8 inches.
