Kainei chawan – Joseon dynasty Korean pottery tea bowl (Dealer: minakata antiques) – Kainei chawan (lit. ‘Hoeryong tea bowl’), Joseon dynasty, 15-19th century, defined often as an original form of Japanese Karatsu chawan. Coming from private collection of a certain collector as its provenance.
Coated in pale blue ‘madara’ flambe glaze as the roots of the highly-praised Japanese Madara-Karatsu ware’s, and with such flowing landscape composed of “accidental” iron glaze caused by its leaning position in kiln-firing. Besides, with unique landscape of a “swell” nearby ‘mikomi’ (inner center part) which was caused by such unintentional left-leaning as well. (See picture#8,#9)
Aesthetically coincidental chawan as is, with 11 spots of ‘kin-naoshi’ (gold restorations) and hairline crack at mikomi as seen. Attached with an wooden box.

approx. D 15.8cm (6.22in), H 8.2cm (3.22in)
