A nice small round footed kogo from the Kyoto kilns – ware known as Kyo-yaki. It might also be an example of Kiyomizu-yaki. The small lidded pot is decorated on one side with overglaze enamel flowers – could be either cherry blossoms or plum blossoms. On the opposite side is calligraphy design – not translated. The lid also has two Kanji characters – most probably the signature of the potter. The lid has been broken in half and cleanly restored. There are several hairlines on the body of the pot – they do not seem to go through the body and may just be in the glaze. The piece measures 2 1/2" high to the top of the dome shaped lid – and is 2 3/4" diameter at the waist. Generally good condition. We believe this piece dates to the period from 1850-1890 – late Edo to mid Meiji.
