The caddy is unsigned.

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.

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.

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...
