A magnificent Karatsu Katakuchi Chawan (Karatsu tea bowl with a pouring spout), fired around 1850 during the Edo Period (1603-1868).

It is no exaggeration to say that this tea bowl needs to be described as a true museum quality piece of art.

Especially such old Karatsu bowls are rarely available in the version of a Katakuchi bowl. Essentially, it's a bowl with a spout. But not just any bowl: its details are specially designed for the preparation of Matcha. It allows you to either prepare and enjoy Matcha directly inside it, like a Chawan bowl or to prepare a perfect base and then pours it into one or more tasting cups.

It comes with no chips, cracks or repairs and an old Japanese wooden box.

Size: 8 cm height x 12,1 cm in diameter.
