Hagi ware, made at a kiln in southern Japan founded in the early seventeenth century by immigrant Korean potters, is famed for its tea bowls. Hagi potters also made a range of tableware and serving vessels such as this sake bottle. The faceted bottle bears Hagi's trademark milky white glaze, formulated with rice-straw ash.
