Distorted shoe shaped (kutsugata) tea bowl with a flaring mouth made of light, coarse, unrefined Mino clay. The expertly thrown body was trimmed with a potters knife in its lower part and its brim. It dates back to the early Edo Period (1603-1868).

It is 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 two fish nets hung for drying.

On the other side w-shaped and was left unglazed and was decorated with parallel lines (one thick two thin). A very dramatic bowl.

It comes with a good wooden box.

Size: 9,5 cm height x 12,2 cm in diameter.

Shipping included.
