Shigaraki Ware Brown Glazed Four Handled Jar | Japan, 18-19C


A Shigaraki ware jar with four handles fired in the Edo period. This jar was made after the introduction of the climbing kiln, which started the production of glazed pottery in Shigaraki, but the body with a fine earthy touch retains the taste of the old style. The irregular arrangement of the four ears and the long, broad-shouldered shape resemble Nanban ware. The streaking iron glaze would glow in a tea room.

There are chips at the mouth and ears, and hairlines at the base and body, but no leaks. It is a good size for a Shigaraki tea-leaf jar and ideal for a flower vase.
