We like to offer you this hand shaped Tanba Chawan with natural glaze cracks. It was made during Meiji Period and is 120 years old.

As shown in the pictures, it's in good condition for its age. The foot of the bottom has a small chip (Please refer to the last picture to check it), but it does not diminish its beauty.

Tanba Ware originated approximately 800 years ago and has played an essential role in people's daily lives, as well as becoming sought after as artwork in recent years. Its distinguishing feature is its simplicity and absence of decorative flourishes. It consists mainly of tableware made for daily use, made with a view to being a part of daily life.

Practical knowledge about daily life was drawn on in making Tanba-yaki pottery, so that the finished product is easy to use, and to the touch imparts a sense of the warmth of the earth and of the people.

Size: Dia. max. 5.2-5.9"(13.3-14.9 cm) x 3.5"(9.0 cm).
