Vintage Japanese Pottery Sake Bottle Kayoi-Tokkuri

It has a dark brown, almost black glossy glaze with handwritten Japanese characters designed with a masking technique. It has a removable cork and is decorated with an attached string.
Some characters on the bottle: 愛知県出納長 aichiken suitocho Aichi prefecture chief accounting officer, 佐治正之 Saji Masayuki, 平成三年秋田治島 Heisei 3 Autumn in Tajima
