Impressing black Raku tea bowl, signed Kichizaemon, of the Raku family.

The signed box is labeled “10th generation”, which means Tan-nyu (1795-1854). It represents true Japanese Chado, made from of one of the most famous potter clans in Japan. Most pieces of Kichizaemon Tan-nyu are hold in museums.

Tan-nyu Raku was born the second son of Ryonyu, he succeeded as the 10th generation Kichizaemon in 1811. He was given the name Tan-nyu at this retirement in 1845 by Kyokosai, 10th generation Head of Omotesenke, Shoo Sosa (1818-1860).

Condition is good. Only a tiny chip ( which is unavoidable with this age, please judge the photos ), but it does not reduce its unique character.
