Japanese Sanepi Kiln Awaji Ware Handled Pottery Vase in Amber Yellow Glaze
This is a beautiful Japanese Sanpei Kiln Awaji ware handled vase, made between 1922-1939. Delightfully shaped, it has the characteristic thick crackled glaze of Awaji ware, in a rich amber yellow color. It bears the Sanpei flag mark on the base along with ‘Made in Japan’ . There are two production flaws as demonstrated by glaze drips and some typical roughness to bottom (see photos). The vase is otherwise in great condition. Approximate measurements: 6” tall, 7 1/2" widest diameter.
