Bizen Daikai Chaire by Kimura Toho
sold

This magnificent piece is a Daikai chaire (large tea caddy), made to contain koicha (thick tea) powder used during the Japanese tea ceremony. It is made in the Bizen style of pottery by a potter named Kimura Toho, born in 1928. The Kimura family is one of the pillars of the Bizen pottery tradition, which is about 800 years old. This particular chaire presents the characteristic red fire marks of Bizen ware, and the wound (see picture 4) inflicted by the potter or during firing gives depth and an almost human character to the chaire. Its lid is made of ivory and it comes with a shifuku (pouch). I believe the tea caddy to have been made in the 1960ís or 1970ís. It is signed, in perfect condition and will be shipped in a signed wooden box. Dimensions: 8.8 cm x 5.2 cm (3.5 in x 2 in); weight 130 g (4.6 oz) More pictures available on demand Please make sure you read my Sales Policy Page and kindly inquire if you have any question.
