Description

Label:

御本立鶴茶碗

This teabowl emulates a famous bowl presented by Shogun Tokugawa Iemitsu (1604–1651) as a gift to Hosokawa Sansai (1563–1646) in celebration of Sansai’s 77th birthday. The shape of the original bowl was purportedly designed by Japanese tea master Kobori Enshu, incorporating a crane design sketched by Iemitsu himself and the original bowl was made to order by Korean potters in Pusan. Korean potters continued to produce variants of this type of bowl for Japanese collectors until 1718; thereafter, such bowls were produced in Japanese kilns.
