Here we are proud to present another perfect early 17th. century chawan in museum quality.
Low cylinder shaped (hanzutsu) tea bowl made of light, fine but unrefined Mino clay with sone iron oxide content. The expertly thrown body is covered -with the exception of the bottom and the roughly cut foot ring - with the typical feldspatic Shino over an iron oxide based engobe. Akashino is just a variation of Nezumishino, due to the higher temperature (?) the glaze has turned red instead of grey. Clay and rough glaze with orange skin effect and large pin holes indicate a rather early manufacturing date and firing in an anagama. Next to the foot ring is an unidentified kiln mark.
No repairs, no cracks - perfect antique condition. A wood box is part of the offer.
Size: 8,2 cm height x 13,7 cm diameter.
