A rare Izushi Yaki Pottery vase in typical textured white engraved with a dragon in roiling clouds. Unusual for Izushi, which is better known for small items, it is exceptionally large, at 11 inches (28 cm) tall and in excellent condition.
Izuya Yazaemon and Izumiya Jirobei began the Izushi tradition in 1764 when they established a kiln on borrowed land in the Tajima realm specializing in earthenware. The production of porcelain began some 25 years later, gaining official support from the domain warlord in 1799. In the late Edo it was privatized with several kilns in production at the time. Production increased through the Meiji, but fell into decline with the progress of industrialization, and in an effort to preserve the tradition it was recognized by Hyogo prefecture breaking ground on a communal facility and the foundation of the Izushi Ceramics Union in 1931.
