A rare hand formed iron koro signed Munehiro created in the Uchidashi manner considered the pinnacle of metal-craft, where a single lump of iron is slowly hammered and worked into a complex shape. This one is made like a tri-legged jar with glaze drips all around. The lid is pierced with a ladle and what appears to be a sake cup. The artists signature is engraved between the legs. It comes enclosed in the original signed wooden box titled Tetsu Uchidashi Koro. It is 10 cm (4 inches) diameter and in overall excellent condition.
