H163 Small vase by Hamada Shoji.
Hamada made quite a few pieces in this form and in various sizes and this one is similar in form to HJ27. The finger wiping here has worked very well with strong sweeps and a very clear contrast from the black of the tenmoku glaze and the red of the finger mark.
5.25 inches tall.
I would point you to this one….http://maaklondon.irostrum.com/BiddingProcess/BiddingScreen/750?pageNumber=3 a comparable form and although a little bigger is of a very similar nature.
