A very interesting chawan (tea bowl) dating from the latter part of the Edo period (1615-1868). It was made by the fifth heir of the Miwa kiln: Kanshichi Rikon ( - 1803).

The Miwa family has been one of the most prominent in Hagi pottery. The first potters of the lineage established a kiln near that town in 1663.

The bowl is in very good condition and very well balanced in the hands; a hard to see 15 mm hairline ends at a minute dent, which I believe is a kiln flaw.(see picture 2)
