Toshiko Takaezu pottery

A small peach-like form, with a small hole on top. It is shaped like a water dropper, but non-functional. There is also a small pebble? inside, so it rattles; can't be removed. Some letters (unreadable) near the base rim. What do you think? - James

you may be on to a winner,I have seen pieces by her with a similar decoration but I don't know how she signed her work,my gut tells me it would not be like that (I hope she did though)

good luck

Thank you all very much for the reply. You're right -- usually Toshiko's work have signed TT, but I think sometimes her work contains the name of the title.

I have my doubt only because the layered paint on this piece is not as defined or outlined, compared to her other much larger pieces. However, it's always nice to confirm a "gut feeling" with fellow collectors. Thanks everyone! - James
