A small tripod koro with a solid silver lid bearing the clearly impressed seal of Yamada Jozan between the legs. It is 8.5 cm tall, 7 cm diameter stamped on the base. The hoya bears the Jungin (pure silver) stamp. It comes enclosed in an old wooden box.
Yamada Jozan I (Hamajiro, 1868-1942) learned the plastic arts under the tutelage of Ina Sosuke. He subsequently developed his techniques at Kintozan, a large ceramic factory belonging to Koie Hoju before setting up his own studio. He became known as a master of teapots working with red clay. He trained his son who succeeded the name in 1944, who then passed the kiln on to the grandson, who was named a living National Treasure in 1998. The kiln is now in the fourth (and fifth) generations.
