We are posting these as a group for comparisons sake, however Please Note this post is priced for just one frog only, for the first and largest and now known as Frog (A). We initially did not think these were Hirado frogs. However, recent reliable information has found from Japan that they are in fact late 20th century, about 30 years old, Hirado maker pieces. The last frog in this picture is not included in this group. Most likely it is Shigaraki or other similar Japanese pottery. The first three are those identified by Japanese sellers as Hirado. There are many on the market for export. They are glazed in brown, blue and white. Items A and C have blue stripes on the side and number two with "polka" dots. Item B and three are different styles but the size almost exactly the same, off by about one cm. The last and smallest is totally different - it is all dark brown and black glazed, I cannot wrap my brain around what it is just yet but is familiar pottery work. They are all in good condition and made with great detail of a frog in the sculpting. None have injuries, chips or cracks.
This post is only for either Frogs B and C and you will need to let us know which one you want. Please see the other two posts. Discount for multiple frog purchases will be given but will have to be done after the Purchase order is created as follows: Buy one, get 2nd at 20% off, get third and fourth at 25% off. PLease remind me or I might forget! Again for comparison, we are posting all the frog information together.
