DESCRIPTION: A handsome hand-thrown Japanese pottery jug (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 the jug has fluid kanji script applied in off-white slip to various sides of the jar, probably denoting the name of the sake shop. These humble jugs have an earthen beauty that distinguishes Japanese potters. In excellent condition with no chips or breaks. DIMENSIONS: 12 ½” high (31.7 cm) x 6 ¾” diameter (17 cm).
