A Japanese Imari barber's bowl, circa 1690 ~ 1730. Also known as a 'bleeding' bowl after the then popular medical procedure of letting blood to relieve symptoms. Incidentally, barbers offered both services at the time. These bowls were made to order in Arita and were for export to the West. The rim has two holes, pierced before firing, to allow the bowl to be hung on the wall when not in use.

A very similar bowl but lacking the green enamel is illustrated in Shibata, No...

A Japanese Imari jug, early 18th century. This jug was made in Arita specifically for export to the West, the shape after a contemporary Delft pottery sample. The clear glaze has a blue-green tinge though not strong enough perhaps, to describe as celadon. The handle has a small hole, pierced before firing, to allow the fixture of a hinged silver lid if required when the jug arrived in Europe.

Approximately 15.8 cm high...

A Japanese stoneware sake bottle, tokkuri, from the Inuyama kiln in Maruyama, Owari Province.

The kiln is noted for overglaze enamelling introduced by Dohei in 1835 and these gourd-shaped bottles decorated with maple leaves are perhaps the best known of all. I have always loved this design since obtaining a copy of Feddersen's 'Japanese Decorative Art', Faber & Faber, London,1962.

The bottle is boldly decorated with green and red leaves, the red with areas of flaking...

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...

A JAPANESE EXPORT URINAL, CIRCA 1700.

A rare Arita porcelain urinal made for export to the West, probably the Netherlands, at the beginning of the 18th century. This is not the kind of export item encountered often so perhaps it was made as the result of a private commission by a trader. The enamel decoration was applied in Holland, 'Amsterdams Bont', in order to make the item fit in with the new fashionable coloured porcelains arriving from Japan at the time.
