Please refer to our stock # 161 when inquiring.

Early-Mid 20th century

approx. 14.6cm in diameter, 6.8cm in height (5.8in, 2.7in)

Pure white glazed Hagi chawan in the stylish shape of modest slight distortion.
Well-used and well-grown "wabi" white expression by the natural composition of its fairly glaze-crackle and specks discolored by liquid permeation (Amamori), its nest holes (Suana), and its inborn kiln-cracks (Kamakizu).
Laudable scenery (keshiki) of living imperfection, as the tea ceremony term. Fine practical condition, and attached with wooden box by the former owner (*Damage at the bottom and backside of lid).
A masterpiece of Hagi already, but also recommendable enough for more future maturity by more frequent use as a potential chawan.
