|An exquisite gold repair like lightning slips down the dark mottled side of this unusual lightly fired shallow Chawan dating from the first half of the Edo period. It sits on a tiny foot completely covered in glaze, typical of early tea ware. The bowl is 5 inches (13 cm) diameter, 2 inches (5 cm) tall and ready for tea. It comes in an old kiri-wood box containing the remnants of a silk bag which has disintegrated with age.|
