Splendid and absolutely rare double vase of old Karatsu-yaki. It has a vivid Chosen-Karatsu glaze, and the grandiose embellishment of color creates a sublime sense of tension between the dark glazed and color infusion.

Very good antique condition with only a light crack of glaze on the back of the white top, which enforces the all over wabi-sabi look.
