This beautiful kuro oribe chawan (black oribe tea bowl) was made by a productive potter from Aichi prefecture named Nakajima Shunso.
Oribe ware became popular around the end of the 16th century, influenced by tea master and samurai Furuta Shigenari (Furuta Oribe) (1544-1615). Although there are variations, it is usually recognizable by its green glaze.
