This porcelain mizusashi (fresh water container) features a square shape and is made in Annan (安南) or Vietnamese style, with blue painted chrysanthemum decorations.

Made by Katou Gotou (加藤五陶).

The mizusashi (水指 - fresh water container) is a lidded container used to hold fresh water for refilling the kama or rinsing the used chasen. They come in a large variety of shapes, styles, and materials, though are typically made from ceramic or lacquered wood. Along with the chawan and the natsume/chaire, they are one of the primary objects that decides the aesthetic theme set by the host. While the lid is usually made from the same material of the body, called tomo-buta (共蓋), often ceramic mizusashi are paired with a custom made lacquer lid called a kae-buta (替蓋). A rare exception is the Urasenke practice of ha-buta (葉蓋): using a broad leaf as a mizusashi lid during certain summer temae.
