DO TAMBA POTTERY STONEWARE JAR & LID RARE WHITE

Unavailable
Late Edo Era, first half of the 19th century. A Tamba stoneware lidded pot, with a fitted and loop handled lid, with overglazing in white and brown Tamba style drip form, the base unglazed. Ceramics at Tamba (near Kyoto) go back to the Kamakura era (1185-1334). Early production in the large number of kilns at Tamba was mostly of large naturally glazed utilitarian storage jars (Tsubo), wide mouthed jars (kame) and bowls for grating (suribachi). Large pots were first made from clay coils and then finished on potters wheels, from which they were fired without applied glaze. Early in the seventeenth century (Edo era 1603-1868) the potters at Tamba began to use applied glazes, and produced a variety of container styles. Very good condition, some glaze chips around rim of lid, no significant problems. 15.2 x 18.4 cm, 7" wide x 7.7" tall.
