Estelle and I purchased this small Oribe Kogo (incense box) from a small antique shop in Kyoto. It is a beautiful example of Oribe ware and wonderfully crafted and fired. I have always wondered who made it - the lady in the shop was unable to understand our questions. I doubt that it was anyone famous as we did not pay a high price but it would still be nice to know.
