Bowl, stoneware, slip trailing bird motif (Britain)





This quaint work is an example of the slipware heavily used in British kitchens in the eighteenth century. A vivid red is used to color the charming bird puffing out its chest. The year of production, 1769, is recorded on the bowl, making this a valuable and representative item of slipware with figurative painting.

It is one of the works collected by Soetsu Yanagi and Shoji Hamada when they traveled to Britain in the early Showa era. It passed into the collection from Mikuni-so.
