19th century Japanese chaire (tea caddy for storing powdered green tea used in tea ceremony) of classic katatsuki (“protruding shoulder”) shape. Seto ware with light gray stoneware body, beautiful glaze with wonderful play of shades of brown and black. Dirt accumulation on the exposed lower body, typical Japanese elliptical lines on the bottom left by a string used to cut the item off the turning wheel, old cover lined with gold paper on the inside. Superb piece in excellent condition. Height with cover 3 7/8 inches.
