Description
This work has Yamato “brocade” patterns “embroidered” in gold, silver, red, green and blue on the “cloth”. Wazen is considered to be the first person who used this type of pattern, as we have found no evidence of anyone producing it before him, and his elegant work is admired. A refined work with Kyoto taste, it is suspected to have been made in his Kyoto days. There is a round stamp that reads “Eiraku” printed in the center of the underside of the lower section of the container
