A very unusual Arita barber’s bowl dating to the second quarter of the 18th century. The oval body is moulded and features butterflies and peonies on a ribbed ground. This form is very likely to have been based on Dutch Delft pottery or perhaps a silver example. The interior is decorated in a rather striking manner with a band of underglaze blue fishes amongst breaking waves. The reverse is decorated with prunus sprigs, and two holes to the foot-rim to allow suspension...

An Unusual Japanese Porcelain Kensui, late 18th Century.

A kensui is a pot in which the water is poured after rinsing a chawan during the tea ceremony. The enamelled design is unusual especially the bold use of iron-red. The base has a variation of the spiral fuku mark, used in the 1780’s. It is uncommon to find ceramics associated with the tea ceremony that can be safely dated to before the 19th century.

5 inches (12.7cm) diameter, 3.3/4 inches (9.5cm) high...

An early Japanese 'SOYA' bottle decorated in Europe. The bottle similar to those made at the Hasami kilns at the end of the 18th century through to the middle of the 19th. The wide spacing of the double rim suggests the earlier period. I suspect the enamel decoration is English rather than 'Amsterdam Bont', the colours similar to English ceramics of the time...

Manufactured specifically for export to Europe sometime during the first half of the 18th century. The cutout, rather small in this case, is to allow the bowl to fit comfortably under the chin when the barber is wielding the razor...

An unusual Japanese Arita dish, Kakiemon or Kakiemon style, circa 1670 ~ 1700.

The reason for the holes, done before the glazing and firing, is not known to the writer. They are however included in the decoration on the exterior and form the mouths of four lion heads. The interior has a typical Kakiemon dragon and pearl. The Shibata Collection catalogue (Volume V) displays bowls of a similar form and with holes, in blue & white and plain white with moulded decoration which they date t...

A JAPANESE EXPORT DISH, LATE 17TH CENTURY.

This fine dish is decorated with designs taken from Ming Chinese Wanli 'Kraak' wares and came about as a result of a disruption of Chinese production during a period of unrest. Dutch traders who found their Chinese trade stopped resorted to ordering from Japanese makers. The Japanese versions of these Kraak style pieces are usually thicker than the very thin Chinese Kraak wares and this has ensured their survival in often pristine condition. Thi...
