Remarkable Ki-irabo (yellow irabo) chawan (tea bowls) are few and far between, but this particular bowl, dating from the Meiji period (1868-1912) is one such example.
The bowl was made at the Fujina kiln, which was located in the province of Izumo (current Shimane prefecture), in the town of Matsue. The play of the vivid yellow glaze over a rough body, scattered with embedded stones, creates a spectacular vessel, whose thin, uneven mouth turns on unsettled sensations; that is the edgy essence of irabo ware.
Kindly inquire if you have some questions.
The chawan is in very good condition, except for a very minute dent on the mouth rim (see picture 9). It will be shipped in an antique fitted wooden box.
Dimensions: 13.4 x 7.2 (5.4 x 2.9 in), weight 235g (8.2 oz)
