19th Century Japanese Story Stoneware Bottle Jar

£790.00




A 19th Century Japanese Story Stoneware Bottle jar decorated with painted relief scene of anthropomorphic rats carrying a parsnip and ragging a large fish head.

The actual artwork is very naturalistic and to a very high standard on a two tone base colour.

The whole jar is covered in a light crackle glaze. One of the applied rats has chipped off and all but disappeared, but this does not affect the appearance of this beautiful item.
