The ewer is signed to the base and has the impressed stamp for Kinkozan. The gilding to the spout and handle is very finely executed with many wonderful patterns. The ewer is finely potted and a lovely light cream colour, the lid is a work of art in its own right.
It measures 23.5cm tall by 12.5cm diameter around the base. There is a firing crack to the base of the handle where it forms adjacent to the spout, which I suspect was fairly common in this particular shape and this has been decorated over.There is a tiny amount of wear to the gilding on the spout and some discolouration to the base.
