A wide hira-jawan decorated with inlaid white slip in the pattern of flowers and rope. The Mishima style of pottery is modeled after much earlier Korean forms—most notably Punch'ŏng. The gold repairs are extensive and skillfully applied, nicely complimenting the pale ash glaze and adding an extra dimension to this lovely work.

This piece is 5.6 inches in diameter (14.3 cm) and stands 2.3 inches tall (5.9 cm). It comes with a period box with the lettering 三島 (Mishima) 茶碗 (Chawan) on the lid and wrapped in a protective cloth. It appears to date from the 17th century based on the general condition and the oxidation of the gold repairs on the inside of the bowl.
