}On offer is this fine and rare Japanese Arita underglaze blue and white large tankard of european form, dating to the 17th century. The tankard has been further decorated in iron red, yellow, pink, and green enamels and highlighted in gilt, probably in Holland in the 18th/19th century. As an item to be used it has survived with only minor damage. The handle has not been broked off but there is some cracking as shown in the photos, even so it is an impressive piece that is not expensive for what it is.
