Two, Signed Japanese Glazed Pottery Yunomi (Tea Cups)
Two Japanese pottery yunomi. One cylindrical with a warm terra cotta colored glaze with white dripping on a coarse, light buff body burnt to an earthy orange where the bottom meets the glaze - the ring foot notched beside an impressed, three character artist's mark. Height 3 3/16 inches (8.1 cm), Diameter 2 3/8 inches (6.03 cm). The other with slightly curved sides and a rich, mottled iron glaze with a white to caramel dripping from the rim as if overflowing from the mottled white glazed interior - raised on a ring foot without glaze on the foot rim and centering two gold lacquered characters flanking a small impressed artist's seal in circular cartouche. Height 3 7/16 inches (8.73 cm), Diameter 2 1/2 inches (6.3 cm). We recently blogged about a cloisonne pendant possibly being the longest held item in our collection. These two cups are, actually, the longest held items in our possession and purchased from the same source - antiques dealer Evan Wolf - in the mid 1980s.
