Xell: used handcrafted chawan's for sale

Postby Xell » Jul 24th, '11, 04:30

Those items are not mine, local tea shop owner who i know is selling some of his old personal tea ware. I'm just posting his offer, since he doesn't speak english :)

No wooden boxes, seems they were lost over time, 6.000 yen for each chawan. He said that the price would be at least two times higher with boxes.

Hagiyaki, summer chawan. Really thin and light, was difficult to take photo of this one with simple p/s camera, it has bit lighter color and more pink bottom. Many small and evenly spaced cracks in glaze.

Someone is interested in kyoyaki. Nothing else. I'll upload them to my page and see how it will go. If shinoyaki won't be sold in a while, i'll adopt it myself. Now my tea budget is below zero and there are still many things i want :lol:

p.s.
Age of all chawan's is about 20-30 years, owner doesn't remember exact date when he bought them, but it's not antique.

Yeah, posting the actual photos will help.

I.e., not links.... :wink:

Unless if we really want to have a Magritte-style conversation...

I see, simple :) Habit of not posting big sized images directly. For future i'll check how to post from photobucket with a small sized preview image

Oh yeah, I remember this now. I tried to post one of your photos which was too large.

You can simply resize your photos in photobucket to around 500 pixels wide versus the preview photo. The forum allows up to 640 pixels wide, but this is often just too big.
