Subject:Help w Tokkuri? bottle
Posted By: Rachel Tue, Oct 15, 2019 IP:

Hi, I'm hoping someone can help me to confirm what I have and help me to identify its maker/time period. After doing some research, I believe that what I have is a vintage or antique? Tokkuri bottle with raised calligraphy (Kanji?). As you can see, it has two original paper labels on it which I, unfortunately, cannot read. Any help you could provide would be most appreciated!
