Momoyama to early Edo period made, little distorted half cylinder ki-Seto (yellow Seto) chawan with a great wabi-sabi atmosphere, rarely seen on ki-Seto items.
Ki-Seto is said to have been the outcome of the attempts of potters to recreate Chinese celadon wares. A fortunate mistake, for a new ware was born. The ash glaze looks like deep-fried tofu and has been given the name aburaage-de. Almost all Ki-Seto wares are serving utensils - exept some few tea bowls. We have only few in our gallery (from the Momoyama to the early Edo time), so please note that these Ki-Seto chawans are really rare items.
This Ki-Seto tea bowl is in perfect condition, very unusual for a chawan of this age. Absolutely highly recommanded for connaisseurs.
The bowl comes with a very good woodbox, and shipping is included
Size: 2,9'' height x 5,6'' diameter
