Nyudo Ware Sake Bottle with Slip-trailed Decoration on Greenish-iron Glaze | Japan, 19C

¥15,000 JPY

A sake bottle (tokkuri) of Nyudo ware, which is one of Shinshu ceramics (wares made in today’s Nagano prefecture) along with Matsushiro ware and Seba ware and others. It is inferred to be made at the end of the Edo period. The greenish-iron glaze called “Soba Glaze” and decorated with slip-trailed decoration called “Itchin” are applied on such a daily vessel.

The simple and robust made may be because the Nyudo ware had been used to produce the weapons. It is a reliable construction that can be easily imagined that it supported the lives of ordinary people in Shinshu as high-quality daily general goods until the influx of mass-production potteries from the Tokai region (Seto and Mino ceramics) due to the opening of the former Japanese National Railways. Now the number of Nyudo wares has decreased, and it remains very few nowadays.

There is a chip on the feet but no notable defects in the good condition.
