Japanese Early Karatsu tea bowl Shiinomine kiln Edo 17c  (Dealer: hotoke antiques) – Uniquely different style and taste of scarce and subtle initial Karatsu stoneware tea bowl (Ko Karatsu chawan) from Shiinomine-kiln in Imari, Saga prefecture, Early Edo period, early-mid 17th century, as more sensitive and elegant make which is strongly influenced by (or more like synchronized with) Arita (Imari) porcelain ware if compared to the other rough and wild karatsu chawan of well-known type. Smoothly smaller round chawan as ‘kofuku’ type in lovely genuine palm size, coated in classy glossy glazing with mature fine crackle as the ‘wabi’ landscape, “designed” with superlatively refined gold restorations (kintsugi) at the edge. Simpleness with the depth through the viewpoint of “tea”. In fine antique condition with no leak. Attached with a wooden box just for its protective usage. approx. D 9.3 cm (3.66in), H 6.7 cm (2.63in)
