Early Edo period Raku Chawan Tea Bowl
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.
