This beautiful chawan (tea bowl) was made in the oribe style, a more than four hundred year old tradition from the central part of Japan; the ancient Mino province. That tradition was in part influenced by tea master and warrior Furuta Oribe (1545-1615) who developed his own style of tea ceremony.
The bowl is very well made and in perfect condition. It was probably made about 20 to 30 years ago. It is signed but the potter’s signature is not recognized.
