Tea Caddy


Description Provenance Credit
Description This is an example of Seto ware. The Seto region became a center for the production of utilitarian wares. Potters drew inspiration from Chinese ceramics, including green celadon porcelains and dark brown tenmoku wares. The earliest Seto ceramics may have evolved from failed attempts to reproduce Chinese celadons. Later Seto wares were given a brown iron glaze and fired at high temperatures to create glossy surfaces.
Provenance William T. / Henry Walters Collection, Baltimore [date and mode of acquisition unknown]; Walters Art Museum, 1931, by bequest.
Credit Acquired by William T. or Henry Walters
