Here is a very unusual and interesting stoneware bowl from Japan. The molded body features a greenish/tan background with six blue crown-like decorative elements around the outside. It bears the "Nippon" mark on the bottom, dating it to the 1891-1921 period. Frankly I have never seen anything quite like it and find it very appealing.
The bowl stands just over 3 3/4" tall, is 8 3/4" across the rim, and measures 3 1/8" across the base. There is one small ding on the foot (see images) and the finish is crazed inside and out.
A nice addition to or start on your collection. Banzai! (Long Life!)
