ON HOLD: NOT AVAILABLE FOR PURCHASE

NAME: Japanese antique ceramic sake jug or bottle

AGE: These jugs were used from Meiji to early Showa period. (Some accounts say late Edo period).

SIZE: 10" tall (25.4cm), 5-5/8" (14.5cm) diameter at the widest point

CONDITION: In general, these bottles were rather crudely made (flaws during manufacture) and this bottle is no exception. There may be rough spots, missing glaze, etc. Only post manufacture flaw is a chip, 1-1/2" from tip to tip, along the bottom edge.

NOTES: These jugs were rentals or on loan from the liquor shops for use by "common" people. They were made all over Japan with the largest production centers in Tanba, Takada and Arita. The Japanese name translates in English to "poor liquor bottle" or "commuter bottle". The name of the shop, as well as the name of the liquor it held, were usually printed on the bottle.

The color is brown with white characters.

Wonderful folk art piece.


International Customers: If postage costs are higher than paid with an order, a Paypal invoice will be issued for the difference.
