This splendid vessel is a kuro (black) raku-yaki (raku ware) kutsu-gata (shoe shaped) chawan (tea bowl). It was made by a potter named Nishimura Ichiraku, born in 1952 in Kyoto. Black chawan have been some of the most sought after vessels for the tea ceremony since the 16th century; emerald green tea in a jet black vessel creates a most pleasing sight indeed.

Please inquire if you have some questions.

The chawan bears the seal of the potter and is in perfect condition. It will be shipped in a signed box.
Dimensions: 12.5 x 9 cm (5 x 3.6 in)
