H157   A Flower Vase by Hamada Shoji.

Its difficult to say whether Hamada intended this form as a  flower vase or as a Tokkuri (sake bottle). Whichever…it doesn’t really matter…this is a particularly good example…the finger wiped decoration is bold and a strong colour while the Nuka at the neck has fired to a soft grey.

8 inches tall.   With a signed box.


Please contact me for details.

Its interesting to note this very similar bottle auctioned  at Bonhams.
