Ko-Imari Cylindrical Teabowl | Japan, 17-18C


An Imari ware cylindrical teabowl baked from the end of the 17th century to the 18th century. It is inferred that it was made at the Kihara kiln in the former Hirado domain, which originally baked Karatsu ware, or the kilns around it. Although it is not a raw glaze applied ( which is the glazing technique applied to early Imari ware), it has an elegant bowl that retains its early taste.

The cylindrical bowls often come in small sizes, but this one has a sufficient calibre and is ideal for making tea. Except for some kiln scratches, the condition is extremely good.
