Karatsu Ware “Chōsen Karatsu” Small Bottle


A Kogarasu Chōsen-Karatsu small sake bottle fired in a Fujino-Kawauchi 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 from the end of the Edo period to the Meiji era, not in recent years, and has a glossy glaze peculiar to the inherited piece and a profound clay taste.

Among these small sake bottles that have scratches and repairs, this one is almost non damage and repairs and in extremely good condition. With a lid, it is likened to a Furidashi, but the size is ideal for small tokkuri as well. Comes with an old box with the inscription “Tenzan”.
