Cylinder shaped (hanzutsu) tea bowl made of light, fine, unrefined Mino clay from the late Momoyama or early Edo period. Shape and style (note the trimmed walls) make it appear contemporary with the late Oribe bowls. The expertly thrown body is covered with the typical white, feldspatic Shino glaze which has been poured and under which a decoration of a bamboo grass (sass) and a fence have been applied in iron oxide (oni ita). Just the foot ring and its immediate surrounding was left unglazed. The somewhat irregular foot is typical for the late production of the 1620ies at the Motoyashiki and Kamagane kilns. The bowl has a beautiful shape and is well balanced.

The wooden box and the shifuku are part of the offer.

Size: 7,1 cm height, 12,7 cm in diameter. Shipping included
