Karatsu Ware Chōsen-Karatsu Style Small Bottle, Named “Tenzan”


A Kogarasu Chōsen-Karatsu small sake bottle fired in a Fujino-Kawachi kiln during the Azuchi-Momoyama period. A streaking glaze flows from the rim to the shoulder, forming a trumpet-shaped neck with a horned shoulder on a flat-bottomed base. It seems to have been excavated not in recent years, from the end of the Edo period to the Meiji era and has a glossy glaze peculiar to the heirloom piece and a profound clay taste.

Among these small sake bottles that have significant damage and repairs, this piece is in excellent condition, almost non-damaged or repaired. Because it is with a lid, it has been likened as a Furidashi (sweets container), but the size is also ideal for small tokkuri. It comes with an old box with the inscription “Tenzan”.
