Mino Ware Iron Glazed Incense Burner with Three Feet


An incense burner fired in the Mino region in the early Edo period. It has a short cylindrical shape with three legs and an olive-green iron glaze applied to the body. Since this kind of incense burner was mainly used in temples and shrines, there are not many inherited examples, and this piece is also probably an excavated piece. Usually, the incense burner is not glazed on the interior, but this piece is thickly glazed and can be used as a bowl.

A small clay ball is left on one of the three clay marks on the interior and a minor repair on the rim. Also, a chip on the foot, but it is stable. Comes with a box.
