  • Sake Jug/Bottle, Antique Japanese Folkcraft #31258
  • Sake Jug/Bottle, Antique Japanese Folkcraft #31258

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 (25.3cm), 5-1/2" (14.3cm) diameter at the widest point

CONDITION: In general, these bottles were rather crudely made (flaws during manufacture) and this bottle is no exception. This bottle has a few small chips around the mouth of the bottle. Heavy in the crazing (fine cracks in the glaze) at the top of the bottle.

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 a light beige or tan color.

Wonderful folk art piece.

International Customers: Postage will probably be at least US$50.00. A Paypal invoice will be issued for the difference between actual cost less the amount paid with the order.
