A large bowl with flaring rim decorated with maple trees from the kilns of Inuyama in characteristic over-glaze enamel on crackled pale glaze which covers sand textured clay in swatches like patches of early snow. It is signed inside the foot-ring Inuyama. It comes wrapped in a padded bag of crepe silk lined with patterned silk enclosed in an old kiri-wood display box. The bowl is 11 cm (4-1/4 inches) tall, 14 cm (5-1/2 inches) diameter and in excellent condition, dating from the pre-war era (likely Taisho to early Showa).
Inuyama Yaki began with Okumura Denzaburo in the Horeki area in Imai, a district in the Owari fief, producing earthenware pots and tea utensils. The kiln was moved to the Maruyama area in 1810. Potters from Seto and Kyoto were invited to create the pottery, often tea ware, and from around 1835 decorated in vivid colors in the popular Aka-e and Kenzan styles.
