Is there a tea ceremony connaisseur, who does not like to have a true Edo Ko-Hagi Chawan with beautiful loquat color?

Take a look on this rounded wan-shaped bowl. The light, sandy clay with enclosures is expertly thrown. Including the foot ring the bowl is covered with a mixed feldspar and ash glaze.

The light iron oxide in the clay produded a beautiful loquat color known from Korean Ido chawans. The unrefined clay indicates, that this piece was produced during the mid Edo-period latest.

Hagi yaki was a so called otome-yaki, which was produced for the household of the daimyos of Hagi only and was never sold to the general public.

Consequently Edo period Hagi tea bowls are rather rare.

The bowl has an older wood box (kiribako) which is inscribed on a sticker on the lid: ko-Hagi Chawan
