These hand painted yunomi are 3.5" high x 3" in diameter, signed on the bottom, with tomobako. The tomobako has a bit of damage which should be easy to repair. In sharp contrast to another set of yunomi which I recently posted, the painting on these is impeccable, no errors. They are also painted on all sides which I appreciate. This is another item from the collection of the American professor who taught at a Japanese university in the 1990s and sent many items back to the States, but never used them. I am building a small collection of various styles of yunomi, all in tomobakos and with the potential for some research fun. Not sure where these were made in Japan or who made them, yet.
