Guest Book

Up for sale is this special example of the beauty of Raku ware, a pottery tradition born more than 400 years ago in the ancient Japanese capital of Kyoto, from the collaboration between great tea master Sen Rikyu (1522-1591) and a potter named Chojiro ( - 1592), the forebear of the great Raku family of potters.

This particular chawan (tea bowl) was made by the 12th bearer of the Raku name, Raku Kichizaemon Konyu (1857-1932), whose works are not very diversified but who created serene introvert vessels, usually in (aka) red.

This chawan of Konyu is in good condition and comes with the original box, which bears his sign.

Size: 2,9'' height, 4,5'' length, 4,7'' width
