MASSIVE JAPANESE MEIJI HIRADO SETO WARE
Massive and impressive piece of Seto Ware. Many people call this Arita or Hirado but it is actually the largest piece of Seto ware I've ever seen at 22" tall and 13" wide. The walls of the piece are 2" thick or more in spots. Very heavy and impressive work. Condition is very good with a line around one of the holes for the umbrellas. Its been reglued and appears to be solid. There is some dirt around the base where it attaches to the shaft.
As an impressive and large piece of Seto Ware as you will ever find. High relief bamboo wraps around the pedastel with birds flitting in and around it. Incredible piece. Circa 1800.
