This is a fascinating pottery bowl - we are not quite sure whether it is a summer chawan (teabowl with slanted sides for use in the summer) or a sake bowl. The bowl was acquired years ago from an estate and the person who consigned was told by her grandmother that it is from the early 1800s and had been in the family for generations. The bowl measures 6" diameter that the top by 2 1/8" high at the rim. The low footed base is 2" diameter...

This is a Japanese tea bowl - chawan - that has a very thick dark to medium brown glaze on the exterior done in a streaky hare's fur tenmoku glaze. The foot and the base are unglazed. The interior of the chawan is greyish white - almost dirty white - glaze with hints of pink.

There was some thought that this could be a piece from the Song dynasty, China, 12th-13th century. However the presence of the Kanji characters led us to the Japanese origin...

Primitive but sophisticated old biscuit firing ware jar of refined thin make, decorated with such abstract drops of rich iron-glaze, like the taste of "cave painting" somehow for its total landscape, in fine antique condition with expected small chips as seen. Possibly as a unique type of Seto (Mino) ware or might be from folk kiln in somewhere in Tohoku region according to its latest provenance (releasing from a long sleep in a old storehouse at there).

This is a summer chawan (tea bowl)- or simply a bowl - that is probably from the Kyo-Yaki ware potters. The bowl has the face of a scowling Daruma on one side – the top of his head actually goes over the rim and into the top rim of the inside of the bowl. There are five Kanji characters on the other side of the bowl and an impressed signature on the foot.

The impressed signature was not legible enough for my friend to translate...

Seto Ware Katakuchi

Edo Period or Later (18-19th century)

Size: Diameter: 5.5" (14cm) height 4.25"( 10.8 cm)

An interesting Seto ware object known as a katakuchi. Some translate katakuchi as a lipped bowl or cup where sake or food is served. Most were originally served sake and as the mingei, or Japan's arts and craft movement, spurred the use of these bowls.

The interesting thing about this katakuchi is the rough carved form on the body and the mouth...

The stoneware koro has a black under glaze and then a milk chocolate brown second glaze wiped on above that so that the black shows through in streaks. The base of the rim of the top and the bottom of the koro are both unglazed allowing us to see the granular nature of the clay used to form the koro...

Both the interior and exterior of these steeply walled bowls are decorated with three white chrysanthemums with bright yellow centers executed in a lively naturalistic style rather than a formalized chrysanthemum pattern. The flowers are glaze-painted over a characteristic...
