Kinrande Waste-Water Jar
Koto ware, porcelain, with design of kingfisher and willow in gold painting
By Meiho

Vessel for holding waste water. Similarity of design to a fresh water jar suggests that the two were a pair, which most probably formed part of a kaigu set comprising lid rest, ladle stand and other tea ceremony utensils.
