Sake cup No 1

Post by Davee on March 17th 2019, 4:12 pm

Would this be a sake cup rather than a teabowl as it's only about 2.5" across. As far as I am aware it's Japanese and probably contemporary. The bowl/cup has 3 dimples, are these decorative or are they for practical reasons? There is an incised mark but with extremely limited knowledge of Japanese ceramics I'm stumped.

Yes, Japanese sake cup or guinomi. Ash glaze. Almost certainly contemporary. Dimples for ease of holding it. Iím afraid I donít know the mark
