What Is This And This and this?

Recommended Posts

My first thought was that it was a piece by Richard Zakin, then I saw the carving.

The clay is porcelain, carved, then glazed with a Celadon glaze. It is some kind of strainer or funnel, and is upside down when in use.

What do I win?

I know you were. One of the worse things about social media is not being able to hear the inflections in the voices. Smiley faces just don't show it well enough.

thanks for the side view. It reminds me of some of those strange ceramic medical devices I saw at the Medical Museum in Switzerland.

Not Chinese with such carving with a celadon, then maybe Korean?

Is it a hat that one would put flowers in like a Dutch tulip holder?

The courtier would be decorated with flowers?

Ok, the place of origin is Japan. One answer left and I am holding off for the one last answer. A hint: Chris was the closest.

So you must keep thinking about it. Even though this vessel is almost 400 years old its use can still be employed today.
