Rough and heavy Hagi Chawan, over 100 years old (Meiji Period), with an expressive crackle glaze.

Aesthetic inborn kiln cracks make this chawan so special. No damages or repairs.

The signature chip located on the bottom (unknown potter to me) is a local tradition from the Edo period when potters would deliberately disfigure their wares in order to sell them to merchants instead of presenting them as gifts to the Môri clan.

A good wood box, a shifuku and shipping are included.

Size: 2,9'' height x 5,6'' in diameter.
