This is a lovely Hirado porcelain food bowl of rounded form with cover and rabbit-shaped finial. Along its body, a scholar instructs two karako in a Chinese-styled landscape, gnarled pine and overgrown foliage surrounding the three figures. The scene is exquisitely executed in the soft tones of underglaze blue found on Edo Hiradoware, and the configuration - a utilitarian bowl - specific to the period. This bowl is in excellent condition with no chips, cracks or restoration. Height: 4" , length: 4.75" 19th Century, Japan
