One of our favorite chawans in our collection is this large E-Shino Tea Bowl, dating from the Meiji Period.

Consider it as one of the best masterpieces of Meiji era E-Shino chawans (Pictured Shino tea bowl), molded massively in the elegant Japanized distortion and completed with aesthetic smoothness.

The immaculate glaze with yuzu-hada (lemon skin) and the dark underglaze markings are some of the beautiful characteristics of Shino ware, which have been associated with the Japanese tea ceremony for more than four hundred years.

Size: 7cm high, 13cm diameter
