A c.1500 Japanese stoneware pot at the QAG with two incised crosses

I managed two posts on our recent day trip to GOMA/QAG on the wordpress viewersite, I saved the crosses for this blogger entry. Purchased in 1993, this Tanuba or narrow-necked jar is from the 'tsubo' period; 1400–1500 and is a favourite of mine - there is something about a storage jar, I love a container 'before' it is filled. A frame, a box, a cabinet they are all better in their 'ready to serve' state.
