STONEWARE IKEBANA VASE
CONTACT US HERE ABOUT THIS ITEM.
A graceful stoneware Ikebana vase with a mottled blue and white glaze and sgraffito decorations in orange outlined in a much darker blue all around the rim. The Kanji (冬千鳥) on the bottom translates roughly into "winter plover", which is probably the name of the vase. In addition to being the common term for a group of plump breasted wading birds, plover is also considered the seasonal word for 'winter' in early Haiku poetry.
