Tea Caddy with Ivory Lid


Description Provenance Credit
Description Takatori ceramics, named for the mountain at whose base the kilns were founded, are characterized by poured glaze decoration. The glaze extends only partway down the side of this tea caddy, leaving the roughened surface of the unglazed stoneware exposed. This approach reflects the Japanese appreciation for that which is not fully “finished.”
Provenance Acquired by William T. or Henry Walters, Baltimore; by bequest to Walters Art Museum, 1931.
