Mino Ware Iron Glazed Cup


An iron-glazed cup fired in Mino in the early Edo period. Most of this type of cup, which is thought to be a daily vessel, was produced after the introduction of the climbing kiln, and the glazing technique of Momoyama tea pottery such as Kiseto glaze and Tenmoku glaze is applied. The highlight of this simple shape cup is the persimmon-coloured spots that look like a Tenmoku bowl and the beltlike kiln alteration. It is a perfect cup for everyday use, with a size that fits comfortably in your hand.

Although it is an excavated item, it has few defects and there are no noticeable defects other than the beltlike sticking marks on the body.
