At last! A Shigaraki Tsubo with fabulous patina and infused color garnered over centuries of use. Stylistically it is consistent with the 15th century, Muromachi period. This dating is viewed from quality and consistency of clay, wear, rim shape, and thickness. Surface colors range from pale gray to red with remnants of green ash glaze. It is exceedingly rare to find a Tsubo of this age without significant damage, and it has been top on my list for several years now. There are minor chips around the rim typical of age, no cracks. It is 37 cm tall and comes in a custom-made storage box of good quality, thick kiri wood.
