Shochu, a distilled sake much like cheap vodka was produced in shochu jugs by shigaraki kilns in quantity during the late Meiji Period (1867-1912). The characteristic form is easily recognizable; a large bottle shaped jar in the classic Shigaraki shape. This piece is very rare and decorated with shigaraki 'tiger fur' glaze, which is achieved by splashing Hagi-white glaze over the dark base. Usually 'nagashi' or decorative streaks of green and or blue glaze were ladled over a base of Hagi-white glaze. c.1900. (17" x 10" )(43cm x 25cm). EMS Shipping/Insurance to USA or Western Europe $95.
