Haunting Edo period Hagi Chawan Tea Bowl w/ Gold Repair
Please refer to our stock # TCR6933 when inquiring.
sold, with thanks!
Hints of the finest powdered gold gleam on the edges of this ghostly white tea bowl dating from the early Edo period. Iron-like freckles pepper the surface which is subtly clouded with soft color. The base is almost entirely covered in glaze, the glimpses of earth worn dark with age and use. It comes wrapped in a silk bag with an age darkened kiri wood box titled Hagi Chawan and named within Kan-no-yuki annotated by Yabunouchi Chikusojochi (1864-1942) 11th head of the Yabunouchi school of tea. The bowl is 5 inches (13 cm) diameter, 3 inches (7.5 cm) tall with 4 gold repairs to glaze losses in the rim, otherwise is in excellent condition.
