A superb Karatsu chawan (tea bowl) dating from the Japanese Momoyama period (1568-1600).

Light and of small size, it is very well balanced. It could have been used for outdoor tea ceremonies and would perfectly fit the hands of a lady.

The vessel is veiled by a thin milky white glaze that subdues the roughness of the clay without diminishing its inner-strength.

Kindly inquire if you have some questions.

The chawan shows traces of old repairs with lacquer and gold (kintsugi).
Dimensions: 11.5 x 7.5 cm (4.6 x 3 in), weight 178g (6.2 oz)
