Kato Sho (1927-2001) was a major Seto potter, who received many awards during his lifetime, including being made an Intangible Cultural Property of Aichi Prefecture (the next level down from National Living Treasure) in 2000.


This bowl has an incised decoration of butterflies, which are seen on several examples of his work. This incised work is highlighted in gold. The signed wooden box does have a little staining that can be seen in the image above but I donít believe that this detracts from the overall significance of the item.
