Karatsu Ware Yumino Kiln White Slip Jar with Pine Tree Design


A Takeo-type Karatsu ware jar fired in the Yumino kiln during the Edo period. It is called the Nisai Karatsu (two-colour Karatsu), a representative design of the kiln. It depicts pine trees with iron and copper-green glaze, crafted from the first half of the 17th century to the end of the Edo period. This piece was probably made in the latter half of the 18th century due to the painting with emphasized pine needles and the wide mouth shape. A pale and hazy pine tree painting melts into a soft white slip is preferable.

There are no noticeable defects other than four Gintsugi repairs and two hairlines on the mouth. Since this kind of vessel is a miscellaneous item, it is often heavily damaged and rarely found in good condition.
