Tamba Ware White Slip Sake Bottle “Shiro-Tamba” | Japan, 19C

The elongated bottle’s shape can be said to be the prototype of a glass sake bottle that will be mass-produced later, and the influence of the Western wine bottle that spread in the time of opening the country.

Bottles which contain soy sauce and oil are significantly stained, but it seems that this bottle was used for sake, and it has grown into a beautiful bluish texture.
