Karatsu Ware Iron Glazed Buddhist Vase


A Karatsu ware Buddhist vase baked in a Mochida kiln in Matsuura-Cho, Imari City, in the early Edo period (probably in the 1660s). It has a turnip-shaped body with two ears on the neck and is covered with iron glaze. In the Mochida kiln, commoner’s vessels using various glazes were produced, but a small Buddhist vase like this one is high in rarity among Karatsu ware.

The lip is cut and smoothed and recoloured, but the ears have no defects, and the condition is generally reasonable. Come with a box.
