Flat shaped and elegant modulated Korean Ido chawan from the mid Joseon Period (16-17 century). It is thinly coated with a creamy yellow glaze and very scenic drippings. Shape and form are inspired by the Buncheong Dynasty Gqey yl Chawans a period before.
Great antique condition with two spots of very old gintsugi (kintsugi) gold restoration, with impressing 'kannyu' (crackle) and a high density of 'keshiki' landscape.
This rare tea bowl has also a comfortable feeling of touch and hold with a very tasteful roughness. A perfect example for the spirit of wabi-sabi.
The Ido chawan will be sold with an older wood box and a shifuku.
Size: 6 cm height x 14,3 cm in diameter.
