A Nezumi Shino covered box or jar. Probably a mukozuke (but for which we are not familiar with examples accompanied by a cover.) White slip inlaid into incised decoration under the warm, gray glaze - conspicuous on the cover but not so much in decoration on the sides of the box where contrast does not succeed as well. A pleasant "swipe" of white slip under the cover provides a bit of a "surprise". The interior of the jar coarsely textured and with a similar, large and broad swipe of white slip from the bottom and diagonally up across three sides. The red body exposed on the foot ridged with three swipes of a potter's knife and an impressed artist's seal along the edge - partially covered by the glaze. Good condition. About 3 3/4 inches square (9.525 cm) and about the same height to the finial handle.
