Item no.: 43005.1
Dark matcha bowl (chawan) with greenish glaze on the outside.
The tapered shape with the egg indentation on the top rim is also called "Tenmoku-Gata", after the area of Tien Mu in ancient China. Translated, this means something like "heavenly eye".
The wide opening and rather small size are also characteristic of summer bowls (compared to rather thick-walled, tall winter bowls, in which the tea cools down more slowly).
Such summer bowls (usually without any other seasonal features or decoration) are popularly used for the so-called nodate tea ceremony, which is held outdoors.
The bowl is about 6.5cm high and has a diameter of 12cm. Matcha bowls are actually never filled completely, but only about 1/3 with about 100ml per serving.
This bowl is made in Japan.
Please note that the shape, color and size of the tea ceramics may vary slightly!
