A JAPANESE ARITA PORCELAIN COFFEE POT WITH COVER

Edo Period, late 17th century

On three feet, of conical shape decorated with ho-oh birds amongst foliage, with silver patinated metal mounts and dragon-shaped tap.

H. 28.5 cm

Note:

Dutch copper coffee pots of the same conical shape are known in the late 17th century. This Arita porcelain copy will have been made after such a copper model. A similar one in the Groninger Museum (Christiaan J.A. Jörg, Fine & Curious, Japanese Export Porcelain in Dutch Collections, Amsterdam 2003, p. 204) has almost the same decoration in underglaze blue with ho-o birds perched on rocks and in-flight amongst chrysanthemums and peonies, and “karakusa” scrolls on the handle and feet.
