Late Momoyama period cylinder shaped (Hantsutsu - slightly destorted but not a Kutsugata yet) tea bowl made of light, rough Mino clay. The fastly but expertly thrown body in the style of a Narumi-oribe bowl, which is a variation of green Oribe style. The whole body with the exception of the foot and it surrounding area are covered with a thin ash glaze, a low iron content of the body has coloured the the glazed part light brown; the brim is accented with copper oxide glaze. The underglaze decoration in iron oxide consists of blossoms (Mon ?) and a fence like design, both highlighted with white engobe. The bowl is thinly thrown and light for its size. Inside the foot ring is an incised + mark. We offer the bowl together with a good wood box.
