Hello it is me again refining the collection. It is a beautiful Bizen piece that comes with the "Shihozan" box and papers. Sorry I forgot the artist's name, but is a known Japanese Bizen potter. Here are the pics:

The chawan is best for spring summer. It is shallower than most so that the tea gets cold faster.
I would like to get 115 USD shipped for the chawan it is a beautiful piece of Bizen ware. Send me a PM for additional pictures or any questions. Thanks for looking.
You would think it would be more in demand since the earthquake destroyed some of the climbing kilns. Yuuki had a new decent sized selection and sold out very quick. But there stuff is a lot cheaper in price.
