Vintage Japanese hand-made raku ware glazed tea bowl. Red glaze earthenware body. Raku ware tends to be fired at lower temperatures so raku tea bowls sometimes have an earthy smell used for tea. Favoured by some schools of tea.
It measures 12 across and stands 7.5 cm high. Signed on the base. Crackle type glaze. Approx 330g in weight.
Hand-made with the artists signature on the base of the bowl. No chips or cracks visible, but because of low temperature bowl is dunted, does not ring true when tapped.
Not suitable for the microwave. Now you can have your own tea ceremony. Great for tea or display.
