It is thought to be a sake bottle of "Shoza", one of the famous Kutani kilns.
The back stamp also says Shoza, but I'm not sure if it's authentic, so I made it Shoza style. (Please note that we do not provide appraisals.)
During the Meiji period, pottery production was very popular both for domestic use and for export, and it is said that there were 200 apprentices in Shoza kiln at the time, so it is possible that one of them made this pottery.
The hand-drawn flowers and charming figures are very tasteful patterns.
The design of the "tokkuri" (sake bottle) itself is very beautiful, so of course you can use it as a tokkuri.
Size: diameter 2.5cm x height 15.5cm x bottom diameter 7cm
