Banko Japanese Peasant Wallpocket
This attractive wallpocket features a Japanese male peasant figure carrying a basket on his back. It is in the Banko style and while there appears to be an impressed mark, the mark is unreadable. His clothes consist of a chartreuse tunic with green trim, chartreuse shoes, and blue pants. His basket is brown with yellow straps. The face is left unglazed. There is a1/2" notch out of the inside front edge of the basket, but this appears to have been acquired in the manufacture as it is covered by the same brown underglaze as the rest of the interior. There is some hard water residue on the interior of the basket. The piece measures 7 1/2" high by 3 1/2" at it's widest point.
