|Gold filigree decorates the rich plum colored body of this exquisite guinomi by highly sought modern female artist Ono Hakuko (1915-1996) enclosed in the original signed wooden box. The small cup is decorated with flowers outside, white porcelain inside with an underglaze blue line half circling the rim. It is 2-1/2 inches (6.5 cm) diameter, 1-1/2 inches (4 cm) tall. From Aichi prefecture, Hakuko was trained by her father initially in the ceramic arts. However she was most strongly influenced by the great experimentive artist Kato Hajime (1901-1968) and his work with gold. This affected her own style deeply, and it can be said that she carried on his research. In 1992 she was named an important cultural asset (Juyo mukei bunkazai) of Saga prefecture.|
