Japanese antiques, 9-19-2011

This is a double post of 2 trips to the antique store. It would take me a very long time to arrange and tag the photos so I will layout what I have here and then it will be like a treasure hunt.

The first set of photos are of a pair of offering bowls from the Kamakura period. They have most of the plating rubbed off.

The second is of a Momoyama period bowl that has extensive kintsugi repair. Very thin lines. It actually was a katakuchi but the mouth has been broken off and the hole filled in. There are more photos of it  following the two vases.

The next two are Momoyama small vases. The first one is a steal at about 1,000,000 yen and the second at 1,200,000 yen.

The next set are of Heian period shards from roofing tiles, rokuyu, green glaze.

The next set is of a renben, lotus leaf, also from the Heian period.

Next is a set of lacquer ware from the Momoyama period. They incorporate a number of different techniques in the design.

Last is of a scroll.
