An absolutely stunning Edo period (1700s) Seto Guro Chawan covered in thick, ink-black glaze; four bare spots along the shoulder the only decoration. The slightly irregular kutsu-gata form settles easily into the palm of the hand, with the built up rim resting lightly on the fingers. We have had a box custom made to fit it. It is unsigned, as would be typical of older tea implements and measures 5 inches across (12.7 cm) at the widest, standing just over 3 inches (8cm) tall.
