Description


THIS ITEM IS NOW SOLD

A rare and large Kakiemon styled Koro statue in the form of a Shi-Shi (Lion Dog - Guardian) dating from the late Edo Period, c1800.

This superb Koro (incense burner) has a removable head where the incense would have been inserted and is beautifully decorated with blue, green, rust red and gold of the Kakiemon palette found on very rare earlier studies.

This example is in excellent condition with no loss or damage other than original firing defects, as would be expected in an item of this texture and enjoys an interesting all over crackle glaze reminiscent of very early pieces.

Looks fantastic when displayed.

Length : 9 ins (23cms)
