Description

This small ceramic sake cup is a light cream color (perhaps faded due to age), with a central image of a brown sword or stick lying behind two gray, cloud-like structures with blue cords at either end. A small green half of a yin and yang symbol lies to the bottom right of the sword. There are five kanji characters in black painted on the side near the top rim and the two smaller characters of the artist's surname (Kanzan) at the base. The inside of the cup is bright orange and covered in a clear varnish. The outside of the cup has cracking all over and some yellow residue from tape. The foot of the cup is in the form of a flagpole and a waving flag, and has an orange concave circle at the center.
