Small kogo, incense box, in the shape of a crab in rest. Grayish brown grainy earthenware, much like Raku, with red glaze and with patches of green and white glaze. The eyes are accentuated with gold, as is a small area on it’s back.

Potter’s mark on the belly.

Japan, late 1700s.

H ca 1.25 x W ca 3 in.

Some of the gold rubbed, split in clay caused by firing at the rim of the lower section, which does not impact the stability of the piece. All in all very good condition

From the collection of Sandra Saltzman, New York
