A very good Meiji period Sumida Gawa tankard , the interior and upper half finished in a thick blue flambé glaze that drips down the outer sides of the bisque body. The bisque background is colored rust and creates a nice backdrop for the kimono-clad figure (probably a Rakan, judging from the style of the robes and the exaggerated eyebrows) who seems to be intently studying a gourd. The back of the tankard bears an applied tile with the kanji mark for Ban-ni, a member of the Inoue Ryosai group of potters. Origin: Japan, ca. 1900. Condition: excellent, a very small flake on the man’s earlobe visible upon close inspection, no other chips or cracks. Size: 5-1/8” tall.
