Takeda Toshio was born in 1932 and began potting in Mashiko in 1955. Mashiko having become an important pottery centre after Hamada Shoji set up his workshop there. This stoneware teabowl has a treacle type glaze and is decorated using the wax resist method. It comes in its own wooden box, which is inscribed inside the lid, and is wrapped in an embroidered cloth probably from a kimono. The paper leaflet with details of the potter that is included gives details of his career in Japanese up to 1976 so it would suggest that this teabowl was made around that time or just a few years later.
