Are you tired of so many unspectacular items on the antique market? Here we present a real spectacular one - only one of a kind, an EARLY Momoyama Bizen hisago vase.

The very heavy body appears to be built from clay coils and then was thrown on a hand wheel, this and the combed decoration point to the Muromachi Period.

The beautiful yellow goma effect of the flying ash is now on the reverse side of the vase - indicating that the slight distortion was incidental and not part o...

This gorgeous grey Shino-Oribe Chawan was made around 1620, the late Momoyama and early Edo Period.

The expertly thrown body is covered with the typical black oniita engobe inside and outside - with the exception of the bottom - over which a white, feldspatic Shino glaze has been poured. Just the foot ring and its immedia...

Cylinder shaped (hanzutsu) tea bowl made of light, fine, unrefined Mino clay. The style of the foot lets it appear contemporary with the late Oribe bowls. But the shape of the expertly thrown body, the orange skin effect on the typical Shino glaze with beautiful orange 'fire colour' recalls the days of the single chamber kilns, but the glaze and the somewhat irregular foot is typical for the late production of the 1620's at the Motoyashiki and Kamagane kilns.

The bowl has a beaut...
