This is an absolutely rare black Seto chawan ( setoguro chawan ) from the Edo Period.

Blackish-brown glaze amalgamates with a wild and roughly thrown body and a still vivid and strong Seto Glaze. It is very heavy for a tea bowl, 503g. Please note that there is also an interesting kiln mark.

Setoguro yaki is high-fired ware that originated in the late 16th century. Black glaze is achieved by removing the iron-glazed pots from the kiln when they are red-hot (a technique called hikidashi guro).

Size: 9 cm height x 12 cm in diameter.

Great condition - no damages, no cracks except inborn kiln cracks.

Shipping included.
