Superb Antique Japanese Tea Ceremony Chaire, Ivory Lid
An excellent tea ceremony 'Chukai' chaire or tea caddy, complete with its shifuku or silk storage bag, dating to the early 20th century or earlier. This cha-ire is of the Chukai low squat type with a generous lid. A rich chocolate brown glaze with flecks around the body. The large heavy lid is gold lined and exhibits a warm yellowing through age; this is clearly an old piece. The foot is unglazed with the base featuring the typical string-cut pattern, dark through years of use. Overall condition is excellent for age. Dimensions: 2" x 3 1/4". An excellent addition to any serious collection of teaware or for use by the tea practitioner.
