A pair of comic Tokkuri bottles for serving Japanese rice wine in the shape of the crested Ibis, a long beaked bird like a crane but with a red peak like a back-slung beret. Here the artist has elongated the creatures even more, and given them quite an expression. They are roughly 6 inches 16 cm) tall. There is a small silver repair on the back of one bottle-neck, otherwise they are in fine condition, stamped on the base by the maker.
