Later Lê Dynasty Muji Annam Teabowl


A teabowl fired in the Later Lê dynasty in Đại Việt (current Vietnam). It has an elegant shape that rises from a decent base and a bulgy hip, and the rim is slightly opened. Because it is applied white slip on the interior, the skin is a milky white colour, and a ring line and a small 壽 (thọ) character are drawn with cobalt inside the bowl.

This shape of teabowl with an ivory-toned glaze over a white slip, bear no decoration or only a few lines, without decoration on the exterior, is called Muji-Annam (plain) in Japan, was prized along with the Shibori-te (tie-dyed type) and Beni Annam (safflower red). This piece has no unglazed stacking rings and is wrapped entirely with a lustrous and graceful pale tone.

There is ageing and two minor chips on the edge of the mouth, but there are no noticeable defects. There is a very short hairline in the interior, but it does not pass through. Come with a box.
