A cylindrical-shaped Hirado porcelain vase formed as a bamboo culm with moriage nodules. A powerful dragon encircles the rim in the round with its writhing, white-enameled body. In faint cobalt enamel, its clawed talon reaches for the splashing waves below. This fantastic Hirado ware vase is in very good condition with no repairs. For a similar piece see “Miwaka no ko-Hirado yaki” by Mr. Toshio Noda, Tokyo 1993, pg. 16, fig. 24. Height: 10” 19th Century, Japan
