Meiji Era (around 1910) Samurai Tea Bowl with fantastic painting, marked on the bottom 'Heian'.

White porcelain from Kyo ware is coated with vivid silver glaze and a handpainting of ocean, clouds and a kabuto (a Japanese amor samurai helmet).

Kabuto is a type of helmet first used by ancient Japanese warriors, and in later periods, they became an important part of the traditional Japanese armour worn by the samurai class and their retainers in feudal Japan.

Great wooden box included.

Size: 6,5cm height, 13,5cm diameter.
