This thickly potted large bowl has non-uniform contours applied at its rim. In the interior and exterior are images of a cherry tree in full bloom and a maple tree's autumn foliage facing each other. The irregular openwork near the rim gives the cherry and maple trees a three-dimensional feel. Part of the foot cracked in firing. The body has a translucent glaze over the colored pigments, except at the foot and very bottom of the body. A large inscription, "Dōhachi," is carved into the inside of the foot. The red clay ground is visible in the unglazed areas. This combination of maple and cherry motifs, known as unkin-de, was the forte of Nin'nami Dōhachi, a great Kyō-yaki (Kyoto-ware) potter in the late Edo Period.
