Heavily distorted shoe shaped (kutsu) Kuro Oribe Chawan from the mid 19th century (late Edo) 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 has been left unglazed and shows a typical Momoyama era design. The somewhat irregular foot reminds of the late production of Oribe tea bowls of the 1620-ies at the Motoyashiki and Kamagane kilns. A kiln mark like a Christian cross is scratched into the bottom.

The Chawan comes with a purple Shifuku and an antique lacquered Japanese wooden box.

Size: 8-8,8 cm height x 13-14,3 cm in diameter.
