S15 A Tokkuri or Sake Bottle by Tatsuzo Shimaoka.
The motif on this sake bottle is one that Shimaoka used frequently. The shapes were carved into the surface of the pot and then, along with the rope impressions, the hollows were filled with white slip. Later, when dry, the white slip is scraped down to reveal the crisp pattern underneath.
Comes with a signed and sealed wooden box.
5.2 inches tall.
