Namba Ryuji is a young
member of the Namba family that has been making
pottery in Bizen for generations, with these beer mugs having been made 6 to
8 years ago. They are unused and come in the wooden box above, fitted with a
sliding lid, on which the red potter’s seal has almost faded. Ryuji’s
personal mark is to be found on the bottom of each mug and there is a paper
sheet enclosed that gives details of the potter in Japanese.
