This title offers an intelligent and insightful overview of 20th century Japanese Banko ceramics. The 17th century Tokyo potter named Banko made pottery in a unique fashion with shapes and decorations that included flowers, birds, monkeys, sea creatures and human figures. The late 19th century saw a revival of the Banko style and pieces were made in great numbers. Historical information on early 20th century Japanese Banko ware is, however, quite scarce. This publication discusses the period and features approximately seventy whimsical pieces, both glazed and unglazed, as well as marble-ware, from one of the largest private collections in the world.
