This ewer with a lid has a vividly colored iroe design on the "Ninseiji" (Ninseiji) surface.
"Ninseiji" is the color of pottery favored by Nonomura Ninsei, a potter of the Edo period.
The characteristic of "Ninseiji" is a soft milky white pottery with fine cracks in the glaze called Kan-nyu (penetration).
Because it shows colored and gilded decoration better than blue-and-white porcelain, ninsei-ji is loved in Kyo-yaki, especially for tea ceremony utensils.
The word "Youraku" is derived from the Indian jewelry of the nobility and was introduced into Buddhism as a pattern.
This gorgeous and noble pattern has been popular since ancient times.
