A large bowl covered in rich Oribe green by Koie Ryoji enclosed in the original signed wooden box titled Oribe Chawan.  Asymetric lines scar the blanketed green body, the rim undulating like ripples on a pond around the misshapen form.  An excellent example of this important artists work. 
Size, D 14.2 x 15.1 cm ( 5.9 inches)  H 9.2  cm ( 3.6 inches) 
Condition, Excellent
