Garrett: Porcelain Chawan (by Ron Mello), Organic Matcha

Postby Garrett » May 13th, '12, 04:41

Asking prices are lowered. Please see my post below.

Selling two items here, as I've moved away from matcha and more into other teas.

I have references here as well as 100% feedback on eBay (user name dodgerfn82). I can be contacted here via PM, however communication via email is much better for me (using dodgersgm@gmail.com).

First is a porcelain chawan. This piece truly is stunning and yet very functional. Dimensions are 3.5"h x 4.2"w. It holds about 17 oz. of water when it is filled all the way up to the brim.

It was created by an extremely skilled artisan in the U.S. by the name of Ron Mello. According to the description: "this piece was high fired with multiple glazes. The photos don't really do justice to the wonderful soft, iridescent surface of this piece. It's truly a one-of-a-kind."

I'm asking $50 OBO for the chawan--the price includes shipping in the USA via USPS First Class Mail with tracking and full insurance. I will eat the Paypal fees.

Next up for sale is two unopened (with air tight seal) 50g bags of "Organic Uji Matcha Yuuki Konjo" from the well-known vendor Yuuki-Cha.

I paid $29 shipped for both, and I'm asking $12 OBO for each 50g bag (if you'd like both bags then I can do $22 combined)--the price includes shipping,in the USA via USPS First Class Mail with tracking and full insurance. I will eat the Paypal fees.

That's a Ron Mello chawan. I can vouch for the quality - beautiful work, and deceivingly lightweight. I own three of them.

I am so glad that you chimed in! When I purchased the chawan I did a copy-and-paste of the seller's description, but not the seller's actual name. A silly mistake on my part. :oops:

Now I can find my way back to his Etsy store to buy more of his wares, and for that I say "thank you." :mrgreen:

P.S. I'd love to see or hear more about what you own of his. :)

What if I bundle the items together for one low(er) price?

How about $60 shipped in the US for all three items (chawan + two bags of organic matcha)? I'll throw in a like-new Chasen Kusenaoshi (color is jade-green) for free, too.

I'm motivated to sell, as I need to get some money out of these so I can start venturing into other teas. 8)
