Japanese mingei folk art Mino ware flask

‘Binbo-tokkuri’ (lit. Poor-flask) of ash-glazed Mino pottery ware, Edo period, 19th century, as a store’s lending container of liquor (sake) for the purchaser, like glass or plastic bottle of today. So, originally just a disposable usage, but unignorable aesthetic for today. Folksy chicness with depth. In actual used condition, with expected sign of use as is. approx. H 22cm (8.66in), D 12cm (4.72in)
