Japanese Bizen ware pottery red-streaked vase or bottle ,signed Tall Slender Bowling Pin Shape
Japenese Bizen Ware Wood Fired red - streak pottery vase or saki bottle with a minimalist appeal. It is clearly signed on the lower side of the vase but as a non Japanese speaker I don't know what is says. The finish is matte and the texture is quite smooth.. The base color is a grayish brown with a very slight hint of green in certain lights. And it has streaks of orange . For the most part it appear to be a wheel turned vase with such an unusual shape like a bowling pin but much more slender. It is 11' tall and heavy for the size. The condition is excellent.
