A Japanese Vintage Banko Ware Miniature Ikebana Vase or Mukozuke bowl was made in the early 20th-century. It is a very fine and quality Japanese piece indeed. A nice porcelain ewer or Mukozuke bowl was made on the potter's wheel and fired at the highest of temperatures creating this little beauty. A miniature baluster shape is formed. with a very lovely shape and a small, partially scalloped pouring mouth. Most likely, it was designed as a Mukozuke bowl, see below for more info. It is also the same size as the small vases used for ikebana. t is decorated in underglaze red and overglaze gold enamels of egret or cranes. This is a very fine quality piece. It is incised by the potter on the bottom, with a mark that says 'Nihon made' or 'Mae in Japan'. It is in excellent condition with no cracks or chips. (3 9/16

About the Mukozuke Bowl

Mukozuke style is the Japanese name for a bowl with a spout; and is a dish most often used to hold something to eat with sake. The food most often served for the mukozuke is raw fish with a tart sauce and a contrasting vegetable, with grated wasabi. The first place among mukozuke is usually reserved for fine Chinese pieces of the Ming period, mainly red overglaze enamel on porcelain, sometimes with gold, called gosu aka-e. New types of Japanese ceramics were then developed.
