Ao-Oribe Chawan of Early Edo Period

Little distorted half cylinder shaped (kutsugata) tea bowl made of light, coarse, unrefined Mino clay. The expertly thrown body is covered with the typical green copper oxide glaze inside and outside. A 'window' on the side has been left unglazed for decoration in iron oxide engobe under a clear ash glaze in a pattern squares and triangles. This is a typical late Momoyama design. The somewhat irregular foot is typical for the late production of the 1620-ies at the Motoyashiki and Kamagane kilns. Inside the ring is the kamajirushi イ、which is frequently found on bowls manufactured at the Motoyashiki kiln.

A good wood box is part of the offer.

Size: 8,1 cm height x 11,7 - 12,9 cm diameter.
