The trade name of Shuho is well known internationally for high quality bonsai containers. This handmade rectangular container has a beautiful green - blue Oribe glaze. The container seems to have been used slightly but there is not much patina development as yet. There are a no chips or cracks apart from a single spot where perhaps a lump of glazed formed on the outside lip and was sanded off. This is a very special pot which has tremendous character.
