A beautiful assortment of colors and textures play across the dark red surface of this exquisite Chaire tea container by Fujiwara Ken enclosed in the original signed wooden box titled Bizen Yohen Chaire and annotated by Sokuchusai (1901-1979) the 13th generations Omotesenke Headmasteres. One can easily see why a graet tea ceremony master would wish to associate his name with the work. This is one of the best pieces I have ever seen by this important artist.
