A large storage jar in austere dark clay with a thick smattering of amber glaze on the shoulder dating from the early 17th century. This is the highly sought Shigaraki ware, and finding pieces of this brittle clay in such fine condition is rare. It is 39 cm tall and in overall excellent condition. There is one very old chip to the rim.
