A perfectly formed 17th-18th century Senbei Jar for storage of dry goods with a raised neck very typical of the early Edo period. The unーglazed Terracotta clay shows a blast of natural dark ash around the shoulder, and from midway down it has blackened with age and handling. It is 14 inches (36 cm) tall, 11 inches (28 cm) diameter and in excellent condition.
