Sake set - I think

Post by lindylou08 on October 5th 2017, 2:27 pm

Found this lovely set recently - couldn't leave it on the shelf.
Incised marks that look Japanese. Delicately potted, unusual handle-less jug and charming little cups. It is possible the cups and the jug are from different 'sets' as the clay is different
Lovely glaze

With the strainer in the jug I think it's intended for tea LL.

Yes, Japanese. I'll see if I can find the region. Nice set.

Yes it's a small tea set with probably one cup missing, as a set would usually have 5 cups.

I don't recognise the mark but feel confident that the set was meant to go together. However, the different stoneware body of the teapot and the cups suggests that they were made by separate potters in the same pottery.
