Here is a spectacular stoneware jar used for the tea ceremony. On its body, a pair of rabbits quietly rest on a hillside mid gilt-detailed bamboo. The rippling, tenmoko glaze ,coveted for its fascinating green, red, brown and orange colors, serves as an exciting setting for these lovely creatures, so delicately incised and raised. Signature of the great ceramist, MAKUZU KOZAN on the base. With original tomobako. For similar piece, please see "Bridging East and West--Japanese Ceramics from the Kozan Studio (Selections from the Perry Foundation)" by Kathleen Emerson-Dell,Trustees of the Walters Art Gallery, 1994, page 56 Fig. 32. The jar is in excellent condition with no chips, cracks or restoration. Height: 7.25" Meiji Period, Japan
