Here's a rare Moriyama Mori-Machi Pottery Divided Covered Box with a simple handpainted Cherry Blossom Design in bright lime green and black over a vanilla white body.

This 1920s Japanese storage box is just gorgeous! It's bigger than it looks in these photos. It's 10" long x 6" wide x 5.5" tall,. It's divided inside into two sections and it covers like a shoe box and it's about the same size.. There's a 1.5" knob recessed into the cover and carry handles recessed into the ends of the box.

This set has some checking in the glaze and a dark spot on the cover, but that's to be expected in any antique pottery and it doesn't distract from the beauty of this set at all.

I've had this pretty old Japanese icebox storage box for a very very long time and it's far too beautiful to be stashed away in an upper cupboard like it's been for the past 15 years at my place.
These big boxes were designed to be used for food storage in Iceboxes back in the days before refrigeration; when the iceman came to deliver a big block of handcut ice to the lady of the house every few days during the summer months for the icebox.

Here's a little bit about Mariyama Pottery in case you're interested in learning a little more about it:

Moriyama Pottery was located in Mori-Machi in Shizuoka Prefecture.
Moriyama Pottery was established in 1911 by Hidekichi Nakamura who was taught pottery making by Seison Suzuki. There are currently four studios continuing the Moriyama tradition in and around Mori-machi and they are Seison, Seizon, Nakamura and Tame.

This wonderful piece is stamped with a crown with a wreath of leaves similar to the wreath found on the Noritake stamp. This stamp is marked “Moriyama Hand Paint Japan” and it dates to the 1920.

I'll shed a silent tear when she goes; please give her a nice home, okay?
