A remarkable black Oribe chawan (tea bowl) dating from the Meiji period (1868-1912).
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 and deformed shape.
I will gladly answer any question you might have.
The chawan is in very good condition; there is a fine hairline visible near the kodai (foot), but the bowl does not leak. It will be shipped in a vintage fitted wooden box.
