Subject:Japanese art pottery?? Old?
Posted By: Brandon mccloskey Fri, Feb 02, 2018 IP:

I picked these up a while ago because the teapot caught my eye, it struck me as Japanese pottery, the vase was beside it and I figured better safe than sorry. I was hoping someone here would be knowledgeable in the field enough to tell me what I have. Thanks guys!

A nice rustic tea pot, almost certainly Japanese.

The 'vase' next to it is a tokkuri - a sake bottle. If you measure its capacity it will probably be very close to .18 of a litre.

Thanks, I thought it may be Japanese, now if I could only nail down a good estimate of the age. You think it's a sake bottle? The lip isn't nearly as pronounced as it appears in the picture, It doesn't pour very well either hmm.. | Associations | Articles | Exhibitions | Galleries |
