16th Century Antique Japanese Tokoname Pottery Tsubo
Please refer to our stock # TCR6972 when inquiring.
A later Muromachi to Momoyama period (16th century) storage jar from the Tokoname region displaying a thin green glaze over the rich, wet red clay. Thickly potted, air bubbles have burst on the surface, a product of impurities and the undoubted high demand at that time stretching the limits of production. Roughly 11 inches (28 cm) tall. There is a firing flaw extending from the neck on one side, and a crack from the other (see close-up photos).
Tokoname was one of the famous Rokkoyo or Six Ancient Kilns (Echizen, Seto Tokoname, Shigaraki, Tamba and Bizen), and was the oldest and most prolific.
