Vintage cream-colored tokkuri with a raku (crackle glaze) finish, handpainted with a red floral design-- Perhaps an abutilon, or parlor maple? If you know, tell me!
Just as mysterious is the mark on the bottom, which may indicate the artist or kiln in which it was produced. What we do know is that the kanji on the right read "nine valleys"-- that is, Kutani, from the prefecture of Ishikawa. These pieces are rarely exported, and in fact this specific piece was sourced from a local antiques dealer that imports directly from Japanese auctions and estate sales.
Two very similar (but not identical) tokkuri are available. If you have a preference, please indicate.
