Yamachawan are some of the oldest examples of ceramic tableware in Japan’s history. These simple, unglazed, utilitarian tableware from the late Heian (794–1185) through the Muromachi (1392–1573) periods were fired in stacks. They are often excavated from fields in the Aichi and Gifu regions of central Japan. While most yamachawan are unglazed, this chawan has a lovely yellow natural ash glaze that dances artfully around the inside, and drips evenly along the underside of the undulating rim. The last photo shows this yamachawan with another that we have in stock.
CONDITION: Excellent. There are no chips or cracks, which is amazing for an excavated ancient piece.
