Guest Book
Rustic Irabo style glaze covers this Edo period Hidaka-yaki Mizusashi covered in a black lacquered tsukuibuta sculpted wood lid. It is 15.5 cm (6 inches) diameter, 16cm (6-1/2 inches) tall and in excellent condition. The piece is published in the book Kishu Zenmyoji yaki (1986) figure 46. A copy of the book is included. It comes enclosed in an old wooden storage box with separate compartment for the lid.
This type of earthenware is from one of the commissioned kilns of the Kishu Domain. Also known as Zenmyoji-yaki, the kiln was established by Genryo, the 6th generation chief priest of Zenmyoji in Shima Village in Hidaka Country, during the Kyoho era (1716 – 1735).
