A truly wonderful and rare chawan (tea bowl), dating from the late part of the Edo period (1615-1868). It is a Sanda ceramic, made in the town of Sanda, Hyogo prefecture, north of Kobe, a ceramic production center since the end of the 17th century. Unlike other major centers, Sanda was dedicated to the making of celadon ware, yet it remained humble in name.
The mesmerizing light greenish-blue finely crackled glaze is a rare robe for such a vessel. It dresses the dynamic shape of the bowl and reinforces its lightness. The kodai (foot) is a spectacular play of opposites: smooth and rough, light and dark; a not often seen balance.
Kindly inquire is you have some questions.
The bowl is in very good condition. It will be shipped in an antique fitted wooden box.
