Illustrated for another blue Monday, is a wonderful soft blue celadon koro, incense burner by master renaissance potter; Kishimoto Kennin. This kannyu-seiji-koro is thickly glazed with the ridges having been thinned down to show off iron highlights around the pot, breaking up the celadon surface. The koro measures just shy of 9” tall and was prominently featured in a book on Kishimoto Kennin’s Seiji works.

To round out this Monday, we have the great Hoagy Carmichael and Lauren Bacall duet from the excellent Humphrey Bogart classic; TO HAVE AND HAVE NOT. Short, but sweet, enjoy.
