A lovely Shino tea bowl fashioned from coarse, iron-rich Mino clay and covered in feldspar glazing. The crackled glazing along with the elongated kutsugata shape (shoe shape) are very typical of this type of Shino-ware and these elements compliment each other nicely. The shape allows the chawan to rest firmly in the hands and the light-colored glaze makes a beautiful backdrop for a frothy bowl of green matcha tea.

In excellent condition, this piece measures 5.1 inches in diameter at its widest point (13 cm) and stands 2.75 inches tall (7 cm). It comes with a wooden box (awase-bako) and a protective yellow cloth.
