Here's a very good sized planter i picked up the other day. can anyone tell me anything about it? old? new? i'm pretty certain that this is japanese and it may be old. the hole in the bottom is a large keyhole design, which i've never seen before. i should have gotten a picture of the bottom. this type of pottery is called Martaban Brown, but i don't know much more about it than that.
