Ryukyuan White Slip Jar


A jar fired during the end of the Edo period to the Meiji period. A glossy transparent glaze is applied on the engobe, and the colouring imbued under the glaze create exceptional nuances.

The reddish soft clay and the curved line shoulder show the characteristics of Ryukyu ceramic. However, the white-slip wares were also crafted in several parts of Japan, such as the so-called Shiratanba, which was produced in the Tamba region.

There are minor chips on the base, and there might be minor hairlines in the crackle glaze, but the condition is generally good.
