CHINESE CIZHOU BOWL WITH UNDERGLAZE IRON DECORATION (Dealer: misakadou) – This is a rare Chinese pottery bowl with ‘tetsue’ underglaze iron decoration from Cizhou kiln in Ming Dynasty (1368-1644), applied to chawan used as the tea ceremony article in Japan, from the private collection of a Japanese pottery collector. Personally, I have never seen such a Cizhou chawan with plentifully random allover iron decoration ever, since usually with just a simple and easy design as known so. Probably this iron decoration is the one expressed to imitate the luxury stir glaze by kneading method of Mainland China in my opinion, but it seems to be also inspired with ‘wabi’ (as ‘cha-no-yu’) and express the primitive impression well at the same time as the result as is. In fine antique condition, with some inborn kiln-flaws as seen, but no fatal cracks or chips. Attached with a paulownia box made by the collector.
approx. H 8cm (3.14in), D 14cm (5.51in)
