Karatsu Ware Ko-takeo Type Jar with White Slip-Brushed Design


A Ko-takeo jar fired in the early Edo period. It has a bulgy body called Efugo-gata shape, and the bottom is flat. The exterior is brushed with white slip and combed to create a wavy pattern, then finished with a transparent glaze. Originally intended as an everyday vessel, such as a salt container, its size and capacity also make it ideal for use as a tea bowl or slop bowl. The jar’s aesthetic appeal lies in the contrast between the pale, soft exterior and the dark, iron-glazed interior.

There are several Kintsugi restorations on the lip. It comes with a box.
