Bottle with inlaid design of orchids

Label Text

This Edo period bottle, which Freer purchased in New York from Yamanaka and Company, features a freehand spray of leaves along with a more formalized "rope-curtain" collar along the neck. In the Peacock Room in Detroit, it was exhibited with other dark, glossy ceramics, some of which were decorated with touches of gold pigment.
