Poo Ware, Hotei Vase Vintage Brown Export
I have seen a number of names attached to this type of crude export ware from Japan. It is probably not Sumida, but I have seen them called poo ware to describe the raised relief decoration set into the body of the piece. You can see a Buddha Figure. This piece is in excellent condition and double marked, Made in Japan on bottom and a stamp boxed glyph on the back bottom that I can not make out. This piece is about 5 3/4" tall. It is at least 70 or 80 years old.
