We had never seen a pot shape like this before. Peter indicated that it is an unusual shape but desirable. We agree with both thoughts so we added it to our collection.
We enjoy the painted scenes on the front and the back – but to be direct we are clueless which is which for this pot. We think the first photo is the back and the second photo is the front since the 2nd photo is wider with the back reducing in size. Anyone with any insight on this is encouraged to comment.
The top and bottom view photographs were taken by Peter. As the photo shows this pot has been used for a very long time. I would love to see what was planted in it. Perhaps flowers or an accent plant?
When viewing the pot from this angle, would you agree that the front is the wider portion of the product? We do.
Well we are always surprised at the depth and variety of Japanese pots. We don’t see an artist mark so we simply don’t know who the maker was but we do appreciate his or her work.
