Description

An elaborately decorated beaker-shaped vase with the Eight Legions and a ferocious dragon wrapped around the entire vase. The designs are very elaborate and the body of the vase is nearly completely covered. The faces of the Legions are very expressive. The dragon, in particular, is quite amazing.

The well-cut foot ring is raised and not glazed. The base is glazed and marked with a 6-character mark. I believe the mark identifies the piece as being made for the Yokahama merchant Hododa.
