Frowning seated Jizo Bosatsu in prayer, Meiji Era (1868-1912). A prayerful attitude on occasion does not go beyond the clasped hands. Judging from the looks of things, this Jizo is praying not so much for the release from suffering of innocent children as for divine relief from the private torments of obesity. Both seated and fully grimacing, this Jizo is an intriguing departure from the blissed-out Jizo types that one typically encounters. Suitable both for garden and serious collection. Dime...

Two mukozuke dishes - appetizer dishes used in the were used as part of the service to serve the kaiseki meal, part of the formal tea ceremony. Both dishes are glazed in a soft tan crackle glaze that is very possibly Karatsu pottery, although we have not encountered Karatsu that also has an overglaze element in the design such as that in these two dishes.

(See page 274 of “Shibata Collection Part IV” for mark.) A heavily brocaded gilt and iron red background with ... Click for details
