Mino Ware Brown Glazed CupARCHIVED
A cup fired in Mino in the early Edo period. This type of sake cup had been continuously produced around Mino to Seto throughout the Edo period, and various glazes were used. This is a relatively old work from the latter half of the 17th century, and the rich yellowish brown glaze shows beautiful shades. It is a fascinating piece with versatile scenery, such as rough potter’s wheel marks and arc-lined kiln crack.
An excavated heirloom piece that indicates how it has been beloved, by carefully repaired with Kintsugi. It fits in a box labelled “Kiseto cup, Hatsu-Momichiha (first autumn leaf, the word taken from Manyoshu)”.
