Very similar example is in Nezu museum called 上田暦手 (Ueda Koyomide):

Another Ko-Mishima bowl was in possession of Sen no Rikyu himself:

Such bowls were exported to Japan where they were used for tea ceremony giving the birth of Japanese Mishima ware.

5.577in. (14.3cm.) diameter;
270g weight.

There are cracks and chips at the rim. Please see the photos for details. No repairs.
