No chips, No cracks.  Size : Dia. 4.9"(12.5cm) x Height 3.4"(8.6cm) Item Description :  This is a vintage Japanese pottery tea bowl of Shino ware, which were made by one of the greatest Japanese potters, Toyozo Arakawa (1894-1985) about 50 years ago. He was designated as a National Human Cultural Treasure from Japanese Government in 1955.  The signature of his kiln name is written on the bottom. The original wooden box with the signature of his kiln name is also included. (About Toyozo Arakawa) He lived and worked in Mino, near Nagoya. He was given the title "Living National Treasure" in 1955. In 1930 he discovered shards at the site of the ruins of an ogama style kiln at Mutabora proving that that Shino and Oribe glazed work of the Momoyama and early Edo period in Japan had been manufactured in Mino rather than in the Seto area. In 1933 he built a kiln reproducing the original Mutabora kiln and rediscovered the techniques for manufacturing Shino glazes. He died in Tokyo, Japan in 1985. There is a translation of Arakawa's The Traditions and Techniques of Mino Pottery in Janet Barriskill's Visiting the Mino Kilns Wild Peony Press, Sydney, 1995   Shino ware is a type of Japanese pottery most identifiable for thick white glazes, red scorch marks, and texture of small holes. It is one of the Mino styles from the late 16th century. Like other Mino wares, the Shino style is based on older Seto with changes to shape, decoration, and finish. Forms are usually squat and cylindrical, thick but lightweight. Dishes, bowls, and tea utensils are most common. Pieces can be grey, red, or white, painted with iron oxide or decorated with glaze. Firings of Shino tend to be of lower temperature for a longer period of time, and then a slow cooling process. These conditions do not allow the glaze to melt fully, and the result is a thick glaze that often has a crawling pattern.   2) SHIPPING COST a) USA, CANADA, MIDDLE EAST (Except Israel) , New Zealand REGISTERED SAL US$14.8 EMS US$29.9 b) EUROPE ZONE 1 : UK, FRANCE and other countries except Germany, Denmark, Finland, Norway, Romania, Hungary, Israel, Ireland  REGISTERED SAL US$14.8 EMS US$32.0 c) EUROPE ZONE 2 : Germany, Denmark, Finland, Norway, Romania, Hungary, Israel, Ireland  ​REGISTERED SAL Not available  ​REGISTERED STANDARD AIRMAIL US$17.9 EMS US$32.0 d) ASIA (Except Taiwan, Korea, Vietnam) REGISTERED SAL US$12.0 EMS US$21.0 e) Australia  REGISTERED SAL Not available  ​REGISTERED STANDARD AIRMAIL US$17.9 EMS US$29.0 f) Taiwan, Korea, Vietnam ​REGISTERED SAL Not available  ​REGISTERED STANDARD AIRMAIL US$14.8 EMS US$21.0 g) AFRICA, SOUTH AMERICA REGISTERED SAL US$17.6 EMS US$41.0     3) ABOUT SHIPPING METHODS  a) REGISTERED SAL Estimated Delivery time About 3 - 4 weeks (Sometime more than 1 month) Pakcet has a tracking nubmer Insurence (Maximum 6000 JPY (about US$60) /packet     b) EMS  Estimated Delivery time About 1 weeks Pakcet has a tracking nubmer (On-line tracking information service) Full insurence      Registered SAL shipment servise is NOT AVAILABLE for parcels to Taiwan, South Korea, Germany, Australia, Finland, Norway, Denmark, Romania, Hungary, Vietnam and some other countries.  In case the total weight is over 2kg, Economy SAL packets are divided into some parcels, due to the weight limitation of SAL, 2kg/packet.
