Karatsu Ware Black Glazed Tea Caddy | Japan, 17C


A Ko-garatsu small jar fired in the early Edo period (1600-1650). A thick Korean-style neck stands slightly open from the curvy torso, and a heavy black glaze applied up to the side of the base. The work is reminiscent of Fujino- Kawauchi kilns, but it must have been made in another Matsuura-type kiln.

An old excavated piece for a long time inherited with a custom-made lid for tea caddy. There are few minor chips can be seen on the rim, but the condition is generally good. Comes with a box.
