Special offer: Heavily distorted shoe shaped (kutsugata) tea bowl with a strongly flaring mouth made of light, coarse, unrefined Mino clay. The expertly thrown body was trimmed with a potters knife in its lower part and covered with a very deep black iron oxide glaze inside and outside.
A 'window' on the side has been left unglazed and is decorated with a square divided into two white and two black section accompanied on each side by two circles with the same patterns. This is a typical late Momoyama design.
The somewhat irregular double foot is typical for the late production of the Endogawa kiln. Within the foot ring is a kiln mark 'T'.
The chawan comes with a very good wooden box.
Size: 6,7 cm height x 14,5 cm in diameter.
