Nagayo Ware White Porcelain Candy Glazed Bottle with Chattering Decoration


A Nagayo ware sake bottle fired in the late Edo period. Its petite, linear shape is adorned with chattering patterns on the shoulders and torso. A candy glaze, producing a subtle halation depending on the light angle, graces the piece from the shoulders down. While similar colour combinations are observed in other Nagayo kiln works, the chattering decoration is a rarity. The juxtaposition of the hard porcelain texture with the rhythmic and elaborate incise pattern creates a distinctive charm.

The unglazed interior exhibits signs of age, yet no leakage occurs. The bottle comes enclosed in a box labelled “Nagayo Candy Glazed Tokkuri.”
