This very finely potted gourd shaped Seto ware tea jar has a very attractive glaze. It was made within the last 20-40 years and comes in a silk shifuku bag and wood and cardboard box. It is 3 ¼” high and 2 ¼” from the widest part. The lid is made of ivory and gold leaf underneath. This piece is much more attractive than most of the Seto wares offered. The shape is quite lovely and the color isn't the usual muddy brown of so many of these pieces. The artist name, Sadaichi and his seal, are on the top of the original wood box; his mark is on the bottom of the jar. It is in excellent condition.
