Tamba Ware White Slip Jar with Streaking Iron Glaze Design


A jar fired in Tamba Sasayama from the late Edo to Meiji period. Its rounded form is adorned with white slip and embellished with streaks of iron glaze. A translucent ash glaze envelops its exterior, imparting a dewy complexion. The use of white slip emerged during the Kansei period (1789-1801) in the region, leading to the popularity of white vessels among the commoners. Despite the tasteful patina adorning its surface, this piece retains its pristine whiteness, making it an irresistible find.

With no noticeable defects aside from kiln scratches, its condition is excellent.
