A superb Karatsu chawan dating from the mid Edo period (1615-1868). Karatsu pottery originated more than four hundred years ago in the small town of Karatsu, located in northern Kyushu. It has been a favorite of tea practitioners for centuries for its simple design and natural feel. Decorated karatsu ware is called E-karatsu.

This tea bowl is in excellent condition and comes with a special wood box with describtion of its content ("Karatsu Tea Bowl Edo Period").

It is perfectly thrown and has no repairs or cracks except inborn kiln cracks and the glaze is still vivid and strong.
