Japanese Sumida-gawa Porcelain Pottery Bowl II
Japanese Sumida-gawa Round Porcelain / Pottery Bowl, Signed by artist Inoue Ryuosai, Late Meiji Period (1868 - 1912) In excellent condition, 5" High x 10 1/4" Diameter. With four figures peering into bowl depicted as a landscape with waterwalls and a snow covered house. This type of Japanese ware is named after the Sumida River (the word "Gawa" means "river"), which flows in the vicinity of the Asakusa pottery district, which is near Tokyo. Around 1875, potter Inoue Ryosai, who had previously been working in Seto, formed a relationship with pottery dealer Shimada Sobei. They established a kiln in the Asakusa district and began making very distinctive art wares that generally have raised and applied figures of people, flowers, dragons or animals. Early pieces often were covered with red. However, the most often seen colors were green or black.
