DESCRIPTION: Two handsome hand-thrown Japanese pottery jugs (tokkuri) made to store sake (rice wine) and dating from the latter Edo Period, C. 1860. The texture of the thick brown glaze is rich to the eyes and touch, and each has fluid kanji script applied in white slip to various sides of the jars, probably denoting the name of the sake shop. These humble jugs have an earthen beauty that distinguishes Japanese potters. Each is in excellent condition with no chips or breaks. DIMENSIONS: Smaller jug is 10 ¾” high (27.4 cm) x 5 ¾” diameter (14.5 cm); Larger jug is 12 ½” high (31.7 cm) x 6 ¾” diameter (17 cm).
