Rather unusual 19th century Japanese ceramic chaire (tea caddy for storing powdered green tea used in tea ceremony) with decoration of autumnal grasses seen through the fog. Superb free potting, typical elliptical lines on the bottom left by a string used to cut off the piece from potter’s wheel. Beautiful nezumi (“mouse”) Shino glaze painting in Japanese taste, excellent patina. The foot shows grey stoneware body, turned bone cover lined with gold leaf cloth on the inside. Elegant rare piece in excellent condition, height with cover 3 11/16 inches.
