Japanese Pottery at the Freer Gallery

Bottle in Tea-Whisk Form

The Freer Gallery on the National Mall in Washington is one of my favorite museums. Each time I return the displays include somewhat different parts of their extensive collection of Chinese, Japanese, Indian, and other Asian art. These Japanese ceramics were part of an extensive display of tea ceremony vessels. All date from the Edo period (1650-1670).
