Trần Dynasty Persimmon Tenmoku Glaze Teabowl

¥52,000 JPY

A teabowl crafted in the Trần dynasty in Đại Việt (current northern Vietnam). It features a gently distorted shallow shape, adorned with a persimmon-coloured iron glaze extending up to the foot’s side. The well of the bowl bears spur marks, while the foot is shallowly carved.

This example was influenced by the sauce-glazed teabowls fired in various parts of China, known as Kaki (persimmon) tenmoku in Japan. There are also other examples of this type of iron glaze with straw ash glaze sprinkled in the tortoiseshell style. As tea culture flourished from the Lý dynasty to the Trần dynasty, this piece was likely made for tea. The exquisite, blunt yet deep, moisturous glaze enhances the tactile experience and beautifully reflects the tea within.

There are some kiln flaws but no acquired defects, and the condition is excellent. It comes with a box.
