This highly collectable pottery was made in the early 20th century for the export market. Named Sumida after the river that flows through the Asakusa pottery district, it is often erroneously referred to as Sumida gawa, which was pottery produced in the early 1800s. On this mug, a boy enthusiastically throws or places fruit in a basket. His face is carefully modeled and the condition is mint.
