A late Meiji to early Taisho period provincial bowl, likely used for food, decorated with a large prawn with large antennae reaching into the bowl, in a very recognizable style often repeated. The bowl, in a very original and clever way, is fashioned after a copper bowl or ladle. The bowl is in excellent condition, and has a very light celedon colored crackled glaze. Some very minor staining due to age in various small spots, and slight interior wear, but displays very well. No damage, chips, cracks etc. Stand is included! Very pretty old piece that has survived the test of time - very good quality Japanese stoneware. Full sized bowl measuring about 6 inches in diameter at the widest point and 3 inches deep.
