Seto Ware Jar Decotrated With Stripe Design ‘Mugiwarade’ | Japan, 19C¥17,000 JPY
A Seto ware jar for fire extinguishing baked in the end of the Edo period. The shape of the binaural ears(double handles), which is different from the jars before then, and the strow-like pattern ‘Mugiwarade’, which is reminiscent of Western stripes, and it is conveyed an ethos of the time when the country was reopening.
The lid is missing, but it seems to have been used infrequently and remains in a very clean condition. There are no notable defects other than one repair on the rim and one on the foot.
