Wonderful and definitely rare Iga Chawan with aesthetic kintsugi gold repair. This chawan was made approx. 200 years ago during the Edo Period. Great wabi-sabi expression.

Iga ware was always made in the Iga City area of Mie Prefecture. Using local clay and traditional techniques, Iga ware carries a rich tradition that can be traced back to the Nara Period (710-794), featuring easy-to-hold shapes prized by tea masters and a natural, almost wild beauty actualized by the unique quality of the baked clay.

The beauty of this chawan is one of a kind— untamed, shining and free.

Size: 6,2 cm height x 15 cm in diameter.
