Rounded wan-shaped chawan with strong throwing (finger) marks, called rokuro-me. The light, very fine clay with enclosures is expertly thrown. The body is fully glazed - with the exception of the foot and its surrounding area.
The cream coloured glaze shows pink colour in some paces as we know it from Korean Gohon tea bowls. It shows discolouration from green tea and a beautiful crazing - especially on inside, a sign of many years of careful use. The style and the very fine clay indicate a date between 1750 - 1800.
This rare chawan comes with an old wood box of good quality - inscribed on the lid 'Hagi Chawan'.
Size: 6,2 cm height x 12,3 cm in diameter.
